The Baths

I aim to reconceptualize the bathhouse as a collective infrastructure worth preserving, leaving behind the contemporary American notion that rituals should be efficient and isolated. My proposal for a network of bathhouses that utilize rooftops in New York City seeks to promote communal cohesion as a response to the lack of sociability pervasive in the urban context. The Baths take on a field condition with scattered baths, ranging in temperatures and depths, that are enclosed by a series of vaults that guide the spatial experience as well as to let in light.
