Social Sauna: Bathing & Wellbeing
Edited by Jane Withers Studio, Social Sauna – Bathing and Wellbeing presents a new perspective on global sauna culture, ritual and design. By defining the sauna’s essence and exploring how this practice is evolving for the 21st century, the authors reveal how sauna is a deeply social practice that can offer renewed benefits for health, wellbeing, and community. Social Sauna explores sauna culture from ancient global traditions of steam bathing through to modern experimental sauna practices. The publication reveals the important role that design plays in creating spaces that contribute to wellbeing. With examples such as the Bathing Culture sauna in Gothenburg by architects raumlabor, the Agora sauna created for the nomadic SALT festival and Steam of Life by JKMM Architects for Burning Man Festival. Creatives such as Bauhaus Sauna Society observe sauna traditions and stage sauna lectures and workshops, developing their own rituals with a deep respect for the vernacular spirit.

Breath of an Architect: Bijoy Jain / Studio Mumbai
Studio Mumbai, founded by Indian architect Bijoy Jain (born 1965), is composed of architects and craftsmen who design and build each project themselves using local resources. From December 2023 to April 2024, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain welcomed Jain and his studio to design an exhibition space. Inspired by the rhythm of breathing, Jain creates structures of bamboo, brick and stone, forming a meditative landscape ripe for contemplation in dialogue with Jean Nouvel’s original building. Sculptures, objects and furniture interact with artworks by Hu Liu and Alev Ebüzziya Siesbye, whom Jain invited to collaborate with him. Published in conjunction with the exhibition, the catalog, conceived as a “work in progress” of the finished space, invites readers to discover Jain’s aesthetics and philosophy. The extensively illustrated book includes Jain’s drawings, photographs of his studio and current projects. Fondation Cartier Pour L'Art Contemporain, 2024. Hardcover, 11.5 x 14.25 inches.

Upper Lawn, Solar Pavilion
1 of 5
In 1958, the architects Alison and Peter Smithson bought a derelict cottage on the Fonthill Estate in Wiltshire, southwest England. Over the next four years they transformed it into a country home for their young family and an extended experiment in the methods and materials that would shape their practice; a pavilion drawing on the tradition of the English folly, known as Upper Lawn or the Solar Pavilion. Retaining the cottage’s original stone walls and one of its chimneys, the Smithsons built what they described as ‘a simple climate house’: two open floors looking over the hills and valleys of Fonthill, where life could be lived simply and in consonance with the fluctuations of weather and seasons. The innovations developed in this private and modest home would feed into large-scale projects, such as Robin Hood Gardens housing estate, for which the Smithsons would become renowned. This publication explores the rich story of Upper Lawn’s construction and inhabitation by revisiting the small book Alison Smithson created with architect Enric Miralles in 1986. Here, the book’s contents, including diary entries, photographs, drawings, and references, are republished in full in a new design, expanded by extensive new materials from the Smithson archive. Together, these documents describe the building’s lived life, picturing it as a ledger of wear and use, a means of private and professional exploration, and a lens onto the passage of time inside and outside its walls.

A Search for the Universal: Axel & May Vervoordt
A publication dedicated to the Axel and May Vervoordt Foundation, a Belgian art foundation containing over 700 artworks from both contemporary artists (Jef Verheyen, Anish Kapoor, Angel Vergara, etc.) as well as old ancient objects and artworks. Axel and May Vervoordt believe in art's intrinsic power to change lives and add perspectives to the past, present, and future. Their collection embodies this unique approach and includes more than 750 works, spanning geographies and periods and including pieces from archaeology to contemporary art. Their interests in questions about space, time, and concepts of the void form the basis of a collection that grew from an intuitive and relentless curiosity and genuine friendships with artists. Since the 1970s until today, living with art is a self-evident part of daily life for the Vervoordt family. A series of exhibitions staged at Venice's Palazzo Fortuny from 2007 until 2017 allowed their approach to attain international visibility and recognition. At its heart, the Vervoordt's aim is driven by the transformational capacities of sharing art with as many people as possible. A generosity that is reflected within the pages of this book.

Touch Wood
1 of 2
Wood is the building material of the 21st century. Understanding the renewable raw material and its potential requires recognizing it in its ecological, technological and cultural-historical contexts. These are explored in the publication and presented with inspiring examples – practical and visionary. On this basis, the use of wood in architecture appears to be the order of the day, and Switzerland’s leading role in wood processing and building aesthetics is demonstrated in an international context. Authors from various disciplines create the content framework in which wood can be experienced sensually and its possibilities and limitations can be discussed. Touch Wood – Material, Architecture, Future is aimed at an engaged audience of experts and laypersons who want to enrich their experiences with knowledge and thus become actors in the promotion of wood in architecture. In addition to documenting exemplary buildings in accessible texts and with numerous illustrations, the publication also illuminates the many relationships that connect people with wood as a material.
