Sauna Townhall

In collaboration with Asnate Bockis we organised the Sauna Townhall for the temporary city of Kortrijk Congé. The New City didn’t need a permanent town hall. However, sometimes decisions had to be made.

Therefore we started the city with building a Sauna- the temporary town hall of the city; where ideas could be developed and decisions were made. The main feature of the Sauna was the fireplace were stones were heated to a high temperature. Water was poured over the stones to produce the steam and give a sensation of increased heat.

Sauna is a sex - gender - status - free zone, where everyone is equal. This setting made people leave their ego behind and come up with ideas, which were beneficial for everyone.
