In this year two similar original architectural projects was created in The Czech republic. Two young architectural practice H3T and Mjölk built two extraordinary concepts of the sauna. Both of them originate as a performance architectural ideas without any permissions of authorities. The architecture became the artistic way of alert wrong architectural situation, care of the historic heritage and bureaucracy of the authorities in Czech republic.
In Spring Czech studio H3T architects have hung a sauna beneath a bridge over the river Elbe close to the Mělník. The architects create both, the enjoy of the sauna which could be reached by everybody with boat and caution about the cankering architectural monument, too. Because the bridge is a part of a unique weir built by architect Pavel Janák in the 1910s. The Flying Sauna, how is project called, represents very nice example of the guerilla architecture with enjoy as well as with public importance.
The similar attitude we can see in the latest project of Mjölk architects in Liberec. They built the simple wooded box structure on the small concrete base in the middle of the Liberec dam. The base is the reminder from the golden era of Liberec dam in 1930 when the location was very lively recreational area. The key to the sauna you can pick up in the nearest pub called Bez Konceptu and after that borrow the special designed boat and make a nice free sauna minutes or hours. Project is the honour of the Liberec dam and the message to the authorities that we can make our environment better by the help of very simple and cheap projects.
