Spa for treating PTSD | Twisting / untwisting post traumatic stress and steel
Archillusion Studio (Los Angeles) | Artur Nesterenko and Ara Hovsepyan
Steel as a building material represents the most contemporary in architecture and allows for curved surfaces and long spans. The building serves as a retreat from the harshness of the city and creates a place of meditation in the heart of the wetlands. By being secluded and separated, it allows for peaceful reflection and reconnection with self. The journey through the building and the surrounding nature guides one to his or her true nature. Living in our modern times is a stressful endeavor and leaves one with no time to spare. The treatment center will encourage the people inhabiting it to spend time reflecting and breaking away from the unhealthy habits that have become widely accepted in our society.
