Homemade Dessert, in collaboration with the City of Liepaja, invites you to participate in the third international architectural competition on Karosta, Latvia: War Town Microtecture.
Karosta can be translated as a port of war. It is located in the western part of Latvia, in the city of Liepaja. Karosta was born to be a secret military base for the Russian empire, and later for the Soviets. Since Latvia regained its independence in 1991, the Soviet army has had to leave Karosta. As a result, the population dropped dramatically from 25 to 000 and the city fell into a state of partial desperation.
The first competition in a design series focused on Liepaja Seaside Park, a historically exclusive refuge area in Liepaja, Latvia, presents the opportunity to express your vision for the relaunch and further development of the 'Bath House', designed by Paul Max Berchi in 1902.
Within its richly furnished halls, visitors had the opportunity to experience immersion in warm sea water, and healing with mud baths. Visitors were offered a range of recreational therapies such as hydrotherapy, Roman and Irish saunas, mud, carbonic acid, and sulfur baths.
