Its strategic location r i g h t n e x t t o t h e M o r g a n C TA s t a t i o n a n d t h e i n c r e a s i n g number of office buildings leads to a unique opportunity to create a communication hub. This context creates a place where Art and transportation merge. The building presents itself with a characteristic looping car ramp and an open plaza underneath it. This plaza will be the heart of the building where you can decide whether take a shortcut to your car / the train or enjoy the art promenade until you reach your destination. This experience is enhanced by the leaning pillars that create different spaces as the ramps have to dance around them. These pillars rise up to a 3 story truss that holds the s t r u c t u r e t o g e t h e r. T h e r e f o r e t h e s e l e v e l s w i l l h a v e a n open oor plan that hosts a restaurant.

SENTŌ

S T U D I O P R OJ E C T: PROGRAM: LO C AT I O N : DESCRIPTION:

(銭湯)

Prof. Jesus Apar icio Japanese Public Bath C h o m e - 6 - 1 2 J i n g ū m a e , S h i b u y a - k u , Tō k y ō - t o , J a p a n As the Japanese tradition continues to decline in the touristiied neighborhood of Harajuku, the city hall prop o s e s t o p o p u l a t e t h e c i t y o f To k i o w i t h r e n e w e d t r a d i tional centers. One of this centers is a Sento, a traditional bathhouse, located between the busy street of Jingūmae and a peaceful park. The building creates two types of spaces. The rst one, completely opaque baths where darkness lls a space only illuminated with small beams of light. The other one, connected with the park, where clarity reigns. The main feature of the project is the use of meshes that in addition to creating different spaces in the pools and at the same time certain privacy between them, heat the water thanks to heat radiation.
