An Infrastructure for
Laundromat and Bathhouse   The project situates itself in the tension between domestic and mechanic, leisure and utility. The design takes advantage of the water cycle between two contrasting programmed spaced of a laundromat and a bathhouse, and rethink the relationship between human and machine infrastructure. The closed-loop cycle of water usage reexamines the experiential sequence of cleaning –Laundromat for the clothes, bathhouse for the body. Both the Laundromat and the bathhouse are intrinsically extrovert and introvert. They provide a public platform for private programs.
