Renovation of Pumphouse

Transformation of Copenhagen's first Waterworks
Copenhagen, Denmark

Interiors Buildings Cities Studio

The project propose to renovate copenhagen's first waterworks to a bathhouse, with the idea of  WATER being the media of archeological transition. 

 

As an industrial monument adapting to cultural space, the Waterworks plant is proposed to reopen to public as an urban link of the Distortion street festival - Copenhagen's annual street event. The rearrange of siteplan programs concerns the reappropriation of water as a material related to pleasure and cleansing. 

The reappropriation as public bath not only concerns a festive bathing experience during transcultural moments, but also gives attention to the reuse of leftover machine spaces with the solidity and isolative characters for private experience.

Cultural Contingency

Research Film

The graduation project is an exploration of power transitions in Copenhagen, which derives from the studio’s general theme: the political engagements with space, especially the manifestations within the city in the context of environmental crisis. The study of political space often includes a range of approaches, but the core discipline remains unchanged: to understand the politics of space and the implications of power relations in space.

The Politics of Space
