Speaker: Pierre Cauderay
Profile: Founding member of jaccuzzi.ch, independent architect
The project jaccuzzi.ch begun in 2001 when a group of engineers and designer friends started developing a wood fire hot tub heating concept in the Swiss Alps. The success of the concept was soon extended into a self-made jaccuzzi kit allowing several hundred people to bath together. Never tired of pushing further the group adapted the concept to explore new territories and exciting location, like snowed mountain peak (top of Mont Blanc, 2007), floating on lakes (Leman Lake 2008), down in caves (2009), or suspended to a bridge in a 187 meter deep void (Gureuoz, 2011).
