Floating Sauna in Seattle
The sauna is a great place to unwind and let the dry heat thaw out your cold soul, but there’s one significant problem: naked dudes. Statistics show 89% of men over the age of 60 feel compelled to drop trou when sauna bound—numbers more distressing than A-Rod’s lifetime home runs. There is reason for optimism, though; architecture firm goCstudio is building a floating sauna later to debut later this year on Lake Washington, Seattle. Sure, naked men could still show up, but there could also be naked women too.
The 8 x 8 foot sauna will be situated on a couple dozen 55-gallon flotation barrels held together by an aluminum frame, and there will be a small outdoor platform area for visitors to relax on and stand guard against the encroaching armies of exposed elderly genitalia. A diving board around back will let you plunge your heated body back into cold reality, and because it will probably be classified as a boat, the sauna will have to drop anchor at various times throughout the day. Still, much better than dropping trou.
