Kulttuurisauna as a Ruin
 
Kulttuurisauna is a new public sauna designed and operated by Tuomas Toivonen and Nene Tsuboi. Kulttuurisauna is currently under construction and will open in autumn 2012.
 
The 300 m2 building is positioned at the end of the Hakaniemenranta park, in the far corner of an artificial peninsula, overlooking Helsinki’s east harbour and historic center. It has two wood-burning saunas, a small cafe, an event space, an office and a pyramid, all gathered around an atrium with direct access to the sea.
The model shows the building in a possible, distant future, as a ruin. The model was made by Ioana Maftei.
