Urban planners, journalists, photographers, artists and architects staff the spatial design studio modulorbeat. Hailing from Germany, Muenster School of Architecture grads Marc Gunnewig and January Kampshoff banded together an interdisciplinary group to work “in the field of tension between architecture, city and landscape.”
A great example of their work is the One Man Sauna, built on an abandoned factory site in Bochum. The 7.5 meter high tower rises amid the untended greenery in a stack of pre-cast concrete parts, originally used for industrial shafts. Inside, vertical ladders link three floors: a plunge pool on the bottom, the sauna on the middle level and a “sunroof” on top.
