The buildings that house great interior design are often, well … not so great. With this in mind, we decided to see what Louis Khan’s Kimbell Art Museum could offer as the shell for a new interior. The fourth year students were asked to transform the Kimbell into a Thermal Spa.
We looked at Peter Zumthor’s Spa in Vals, Switzerland and Jean Nouvel’s public pool in Le Havre, France. It was a tough project, but we think the Kimbell would be great as a swimming center.
