Wet Dreams studied public bathing culture and its associated bathhouse type.

Participants researched many types of bathing from around the world and examined the role atmosphere plays in the creation of the complex social relations.   Heterotopic spaces are constructed through clear demarcation of thresholds and sequencing of atmospheres. Critically engaging with this specialist architectural type and focusing on the atmospheric and threshold conditions may enable compelling ways in which designers can construct space. Here the participants presented their research into a waterproof booklet.  Part two of this work was the construction of a functioning steam room. See 'projects'
