I can vouch for the Thermal Baths, both building and video. We watched it over lunch at a place I was working a few years ago, part of a sporadic effort by the firm to reinvigorate our apparently moribund enthusiasm for the sacred profession.

i love these. so glad to see they're still making them. i tried to get my ex, who is an architect into these, but no dice. my favorites are the Salt Works and La Maison de Verre which i had never quite appreciated or understood until i saw this video. thank you for the post, i can now catch up on those that i've missed.

Just watched the one about the Royal SAS Hotel. Very cool to learn something about a building you've lived close to but never thought much about.

Next up: Cologne Cathedral from my new homeland.
