Abstract (Swedish)
Humans use their senses to understand and analyse the world. For architectural experiences, sight, touch, hearing, smell and balance ought to be the most important.
Among architects, the vocabulary, documentation and methods used when planning, designing and presenting a project are however mainly visual.

The aim with this project has been to design a building, starting with the acoustics. Questions such as: How important is the acoustics for the experiencing of space? How can I use the acoustics in the design process? What do I want the building to sound and feel like? How does a wanted acoustic feeling go together with the wanted visual expression in the room?

Humans use their senses to understand and analyse the world. For architectural experiences, sight, touch, hearing, smell and balance ought to be the most important.

The aim with this project has been to design a building, starting with the acoustics. Questions such as: How important is the acoustics for the experiencing of space? How can I use the acoustics in the design process? What do I want the building to sound and feel like? How does a wanted acoustic feeling go together with the wanted visual expression in the room?

The project developed into a building for a small art collection where the acoustics created an extra layer to the exhibited piece; an exclusive building where each room is designed only for this purpose, without demands on multiple use or flexibility for different kinds of exhibitions.

The focus in the beginning of the process has been on the acoustics in the room and how the acoustics could colour the experience of the art. The acoustic environment can be seen as my own artistic addition to the art pieces. Developing the design, elements such as light and context has been equally important. (Less)
