BATHALA: The Himalayan Sky Bath

Project description: 

“Bathala” translates to “God” in Tagalog. This 300-meter-tall structure features a rejuvenating bath atop. Individuals ascend to the summit via gondola trip that leads to the observation area. Individuals can admire a 360-degree panorama of the Himalayas, if the gondola trip is not yet enough. Locals may also exhibit and promote their cultures in this area.  

Then, individuals can ascend to the top via stairs and enjoy a one-of-a-kind and tranquil bathing experience while overlooking the Himalayan landscape. This bath draws inspiration from the infinity pools found in high-rise structures, which visually manifest water without boundaries. Bath’s architectural design is symbolic of the local culture. A continuous water pump extracts water from the neighbouring bodies of water. The excess water from the bath will then return to the ground, producing hydroelectric power in the form of a waterfall. This will supplement the solar modules atop the structure for energy provision.  

The majority of the building’s façade is composed of mycelium material. To ensure stability, the structure is outfitted with calibrated mass dampers and steel reinforcement. And to prevent disruptions and preserve the tranquillity of the sacred area of Gosaikunda below, the bath is situated above the area.
