Abstract [en]

Every individual shall have the same access and opportunity to participate in the society. There  shall  not  be  any  barrier  which  prevents  participation  of  a  certain  target  group  in  the society due to a lack of accessibility. Uppsala  municipality´s goal is to make every  function in  the  municipality  accessible  for  everyone.  It's  about  individuals  with  disabilities  shall  feel involved. Safety  within  both  the outdoor  and  indoor  environments is also  a  part of Uppsala municipality  ´s work with accessibility.  In  this study  the accessibility  of two  public spaces in  Uppsala  have been  analyzed  and  the objects are, the City  Library  and  the area  by  the river,  åstråket.   The  aim  of  this  study  is  to  verify  how  accessibility  has  been  applied  to  the  public  spaces above  after  they  went through changes.  A  case-study  has been used as method in this study,  a  litterature  review  was  the  foundation. Interviews and an observation have  been performed  with  the  intention  of  being  able  to  answer  the  research  questions.   The  respondents  Anna  Sofia  Perotti  and  Karin  Åkerblom  have defined  accessibility  as  an important part of the society  where everyone shall have the same opportunities.  Social sustainibility is important  for  both  the respondents  and  it is something  they  constantly  try to  improve.  The  new  main  entrance  of  the  City  Libarary  is  completely  accustomed  to  the laws. Accessibility was applied to  åstråket  by the existing law  at that time, which resulted a lack of tactile pavings. One of the piers at  åstråket  isn´t fully  accessible since it only  has a staircase on one end. The observations  showed that the new  installed lifting device in the City  Library´s  main  entrence  is  an  obstacle  to  a  certain  extent.  The  signs  in  the  City Library  is  for  the  most  part  satisfactory  but  there  is  some  faults.  Åstråket  has a even paved surface and ramps to accomodate accessibility. A  public  place  should  be  accessible,  everyone  shall  have  the  same  access  regardless  of disability.  The  City  Library  now  has  a  main  entrance  which  follows  the  laws  and  åstråket  is a  place  where  everyone  has  access  to.
