Thermae was not only the bathing place for ancient Romans, but a major public sphere for socializing. Numerous people have been inspired by others through relaxing in the public bath and frequent interaction. Various conditions of water are integrated into our imagination of different spaces, the spaces are connected by water and generate a brand-new form of atmosphere. The temperature, patter, visualization and sound of water correlate to the condition of the thoughts of people in the space. Water creates spaces, the ideas from artists as well as the space are hence borderless.
