Project Summary

Clearwater Revival in Peru

Public baths and sewage treatment plant

Project for a hybrid infrastructure and social intervention combining a sewage treatment plant with a public bath in a contaminated lake in Cerro de Pasco, Peru.

The project’s ambition to provide both clean water as well as a place to bathe is a response to the wasteful use of an existing resource by ruthless industrial exploitation.
