Nothing feels as good as relaxing after a long, hard day. A heavy work schedule, unbelievable deadlines, and stiff competition can make you feel like youíąÂre losing your sanity. When you have something to look forward to at the end of the day, you can breeze through without stress or worry. The Panacea Steam Bath by Tylí¶ is a perfect escape, a sanctuary to recharge your batteries after a long day. It is something you can look forward to.
We had the chance to sit down with Pedro Alonso, one of the curators of the Chilean pavilion âMonolith Controversies,â at the 2014 Venice Biennale, to learn more about the concept and inspiration behind the Silver Lion-winningÂ pavilion.Â âWe were interested in demonstrating that architects didnât absorb modernity, but rather, they supplied it. The ones who absorbed it were the workers and the people,â Alonso told us, outside of a replica of a ChileanÂ apartment â the entrance to the Pavilion. âThe absorption of modernity has to do with the pieces we are exhibiting. For example, this apartment, the apartment of Mrs. Silvia GutiĂ©rrez in ViĂ±a del Mar, which is an exact replica â object by object- of the 518 things that make up her living room.â
