Embedded Baths

Project by:

Padmini Rajan and Mia Petrillo

STUDIO Y

Our project aims to take themes from the Turkish Thermal Bath to create a specific experience for the users while incorporating our surrounding context. We took from many precedents to create a project that allowed the user to have a spiritual experience in mind and body.

Through studying some of the plans of thermal baths, we created a collage that inspired us to use the circles as hinge points which would then inform our circulation.

Our main hub serves as the main destination that would motivate the user to climb to the top. As a precedent, we used this Zumthor design for the new city gate in Isny to act as an inspiration of a floating sphere that could be occupied.
