Soho Bath House

Public baths were once a place for social gatherings in our towns and cities, not only for relaxation and sport but for politics, discussion, eroticism and crime. This research project theoreticized a non-commercial public space within London that would offer a break against the inner-city strain and fast paced nature of city life. The research encompassed traditional types of bathing facilities including the Roman thermae, Islamic hammams and saunas which inspired and sat alongside a set of cast models, drawings and collages.
