Sauna (Architectonics)

  • Sauna 
    This is a sauna design for an introductory architecture class taught by Peter Tagiuri. I was interested in the cleansing and transformative experience of the sauna ritual. Thus, I placed emphasis on the contraction and expansion of space, as well as various light arrangements to enhance the ritualistic experience. 
  • Studies of the light-water interaction:
  • Thumbnail sketches that try to grasp the large gestures of the building and the circulation:
  • Process models:
  • The following images are the final drawings and models of my project:
  • Tectonic drawings and models that focuses on the structure and materials of the sauna:
  • Some perspectives captured in Rhino (the changing rooms, the transition space, the sauna room):
