The garlic-shaped sauna, The Sounding Dome Sauna, designed by Jan-Erik Andersson is imaginative and fairytale-like. The sauna incorporates a soundscape created for it by the American sound artist Shawn Decker. The sauna’s world of sounds changes with the temperature and the humidity – once you throw water on the sauna stove, the sauna’s world of sounds will change. The sounds will emerge from the ”tops” of the garlic.
The sauna project is produced by the Museum Centre of Turku.
