RESUME NORMAL ACTIVITIES [BATHHOUSE]

[group project by Tien Chen, Sam Gebb, Olivia Huang, Cody Kitchen, and Donald Taylor-Patterson]

 

If a bathhouse is an alternative and egalitarian social space, then such a space for an esteemed university's campus must stand in stark opposition to the social clubs that seem to dominate student life with their sprawling, exclusive, expensive mansions. In contrast, our scalable inflatables are small, accessible, and self-constructed. They perch lightly on the land and fit into marginal spaces -- wherever there is a nearby exhaust vent. Ephemeralities of Mylar and sultry air, they swell against the social and architectural status quo.

"This is a completely new social space."

 

“This should happen every weekend!"

 

“This is unlike anything on campus! I could stay in here forever.”

 

"This thing is aggressively cool."

“Is it alright if I do my laundry?”

 

“Can we have our next improv jam in here?”

 

“Is this for sale?”
