The aim of this project was to create a sense of approachability and curiosity of less glamorous operations of city living by exploring a condition where waste management infrastructure will coexist with the spaces we utilize. The narrow site located in lower manhattan is flooded to create a public outdoor thermal pool in which an archipelago of buildings house both an incinerator, as well as a spa and greenhouse component – pairing very different outlooks on cleansing and sanitation.
