This project aims to design empathetically through designing a public bath. This thesis unfolds the fragments of experience that inform a process of design.
Empathy is relating to other people in a compassionate way. When considering how to design with empathy this project employs a method of focusing on users, understanding them, and creating a space that considers their thoughts, feelings, and bodily relationship to space as drivers in design. There is a focusing on the sensations of the body that enables space to exist and depicts its own potential to be inhabited. Research is conducted by visiting similar existing spaces and communicating by speaking, observing, and interacting with people as a designer.
