KAFKA CASTLE in Sant Pere de Ribes, Spain by RICARDO BOFILL TALLER DE ARQUITECTURA

Thursday, June 1st, 2017

Article source: RICARDO BOFILL TALLER DE ARQUITECTURA

Identification on the part of some members of the Taller de Arquitectura with certain ideas of the Archigram movement, and enthusiasm for experimentation with geometry and its application possibilities to housing, are two factors given tangible form in Kafka’s Castle. This apartment building, on a hill overlooking the bay of Sitges, is fruit of the clustering of cubes around nuclei of vertical circulation. Each cube contains a minimalist environment: living-dining room or bathroom-bedroom, articulated on different levels. The color of the façades, chosen from a range of blues, expresses the intention to merge the building with its natural background, the sky.

Sauna Löyly in Helsinki, Finland by Avanto Architects Ltd

Thursday, July 7th, 2016

Article source: Avanto Architects Ltd

Sauna culture

Sauna bathing is an essential part of Finnish culture and national identity. There are only 5,4 million Finns but 3,3 million saunas. Public saunas used to be common in bigger cities but now that most new apartments have sauna of their own, public saunas have decreased dramatically in number. There are only a couple remaining. As a sense of community is becoming a more and more important part of new urban culture, many new public saunas are being planned. With Löyly (meaning the steam that comes when you throw water on hot stones in a sauna) Helsinki will offer foreign visitors a public sauna experience all year round – a must when visiting Finland.

Kaluga Floating Sauna in Russia by Rintala Eggertsson Architects

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

Article source: Rintala Eggertsson Architects

This is a project based on our experiences of bathing cultures from our respective home countries Finland and Iceland. We wanted to offer our Russian spectators a warm sauna, banja in their own language, and a cold dive directly in the river itself. To have some more local qualities, we added a typical small pine tree from the area and fine lace curtains to add some privacy if needed.
