^shown here is the Emerson Sauna in Duluth, Minnesota by Samela Architect. If you're not familiar with David Salmela's work, he engages with traditional building methods and materials, playfully (yet subtly) manipulating them in unconventional ways. This particular project is an Aldo Rossi-esque elemental composition of a "house." Salmela's work is incredibly simple - both in form and materiality - allowing for his subtle gestures to make an impressive impact. He has a published book with great photographs by Peter Bastianelli Kerze. For more images, check out his website and blog. Hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
