Living in loops: This PhD thesis explores the space where design meets sustainable development in the life at home with a future perspective within a timeframe of 30 years, the window of time for transformation into a sustainable society. My interest lies in the overlapping and intersecting areas of these three fields, where they interact, collide or influence each other. Initially the project will explore the meaning of home and life at home, future scenarios and design methods for ‘futuring’ (Fry 2009). As a limitation I have chosen to more specifically focus on tenants’ situations and the transformation of rental apartments in Sweden. This focus leads to more specific questions concerning among others; aspects of ownership and their consequences regard to transformation, agency and sustainability; questions concerning conflicting interests between present and future generations as well as human needs conflicting the planetary boundaries. The project will follow in the tradition of research through design within a design research programme (Redström 2014).
