suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
linda HAGBERG: Sited in the area between the Danshui River and Taipei Main Station, Taipei Herbal Baths and Aquatic Sports Centre is inspired by an investigation into materials and how their properties change according to surrounding environment, particularly evident in wood and its change of shape due to humidity. The project explores the possibility of employing a materialistic approach to create a responsive space, an architecture of which ephemeral and sensorial qualities are constructed from environment and material.
The water from River Danshui is filtered and used to extract redundant heat from existing underground transport infrastructure, constructing an environmentally sustainable system directly influenced by the varying levels of water and the heat produced by the flow of people through the site.
