PUBLIC BATH The Industrial Bath concept is invented from scratch as a project that utilizes existing qualities of Aalborg to shape a strong place in the city. Industrial Bath addresses the potential of the huge cement production plant Aalborg Portland, on the eastern edge of the city. Through a sketch project for a public bath it is the ambition to establish a strong bodily experience inside this unique place of Denmark. The project proposes to utilize the surplus resources of industrial production - e.g. heat, water and transformed landscape to shape the experience of the baths, and furthermore to explore the product of production - cement - as the architectural framework for the building. Thus the building renders visible the qualities of concrete and narrates Portland’s current and past history for the people visiting the bath. In other words: The project functions as a showroom for the industrial production. The layout of the specific building is arranged according to an axis through the Portland landscape. The building is situated in a hill above the large fresh water lake of the area. The building plan contains a series of spaces of different temperature and atmosphere. In a larger perspective, Industrial Bath challenges the relationship between the living breathing industry and the rest of the Aalborg. The project explores the possibilities for people to journey into an unknown place of the city.
