Herning Center for the Arts, Denmark

A fusion of landscape and architecture, this proposal aims at "building the site." In transforming the flat field, a new landscape of grass mounds and pools conceals all the parking and service areas while shaping inspiring bermed landscape spaces focused on reflecting pools positioned in the south sun.


The curved roof sections of the new museum align with this new «built site.» All gallery spaces are orthogonal and simple with fine proportions in respect to the art, while overhead the curved roof sections overhead bring in natural light. The gallery perimeter walls are load bearing elements emphasizing these as the ‘treasure trove’ of the museum. The internal gallery walls in lightweight construction can be moved as per a curator’s requirements.

The curved roofs are a two way truss system able to span in multiple directions allowing for a freedom between the roof structure and plan. The undersides of the interior are a simple white plaster complementing the geometry of the roof. The overall stability of the roof would be anchored by introducing thin rods within the clerestory glazing as tension elements intended to counterbalance any uneven forces over the gallery wall support, like a see-saw tied down on each side. Taking as inspiration the work of Pierro Manzoni and the history of textiles in Herning, a fabric theme is carried in the fabric formed texture of the white concrete walls of the elevation. An aerial view of the new building almost resembles a collection of shirtsleeves. A geothermal cooling system is among several green aspects which set this new museum as exemplary of 21st century architecture.
