The conventional method of designing swimming pools often starts with the creation of a container box from which a hole is excavated to form the water bassin. For the creation of a ‘water culture house’ it seemed more appropriate to first look at the pool program. We have attempted to reverse the relationship between land and water of the traditional swimming pool.
Rather than locating the wet element within dry architecture, we have started out with organising the water.
