This master thesis will cover the genesis of a New Museum Jorn located at the lakefront of Silkeborg, Denmark. The report will focus on an integrated design solution that resolute the problem area on how to create a unifying landmark, that frames the artwork of Asger Jorn, Per Kirkeby, and more, at a location, characterized by a separation between the city centre and the idyllic surroundings. The solution takes its starting point in theory concerning: circulation, light, atmosphere, and flexibility as they are seen as critical factors for creating a modern renewable art museum that can adapt to changing exhibitions and trends and thereby keep its pertinence. The theory is interlinked with analysis of the site, materials, and daylight and simulations in LCA-byg and Climate Studio, to secure the architectural quality of the building. Furthermore, hand calculations concerning ventilation airflows and channel dimensions have been done to create a conceptual ventilation strategy. Finally, the completed design is summarized in a presentation chapter with a focus on design, atmospheres, integrated design solutions, and thermal comfort, which is terminated in a conclusion and reflection.
