Fri, May 22. Welcome back!

This week we reconnect with water. We will dive into our true prime and native needs. 

Sauna, probably a lot of us know about its obvious profits. About 3,000 years ago, the Mayans of Central America used sweat houses for religious ceremonies and good health. Nearly every culture has its own way of using heat for relaxation, therapy, and ritual; ancient Roman baths, modern Turkish steam baths, and trendy American hot tubs are but a few examples.

Saunas have been used for thousands of years in Finland, where nearly a third of all adults take them regularly. Therefore I have decided to watch this amazing documentary from 2008 “Steam of Life” to fully understand its concept. In addition, if you are still not into a sauna, it might be a good option to read the CNN article which is an inspiring account of a person who is just beginning his adventure with ice swimming.

Round up from Thisispaper - the “blue spaces” might have a powerful story of its place in a landscape. As water becomes more valuable, so does its story and meaning. Three projects which bring a speechless beauty from the connection of water and architecture.
