Swimming pools

Found a great selection of swimming pool photos in the Guardian recently. Check them out here. Having spent many many hours in swimming pools in the past, their flickering lights, humidity and large windows hold a vivid and special place in my memory. I’m sure Bachelard has said something about the memories of your childhood reflecting your ideal vision of architecture.

Maybe I will design a swimming pool for my thesis.

Currently drawing Carlo Scarpa’s Brion Cemetary for our summer ‘hinge’ project. Gorgeous building, great architect. Wallpaper has some snazzy fashion-focused photos of the building here: take note of the flickering light of the water.
