From Olympic training pools to relaxing spas, child-friendly swimming complexes to private bathing facilities, this area offers a diversity of function matched only by the architectural diversity showcased in this volume. The demand in each case is met by contemporary and innovative designs that explore the medium of water as both a powerfully creative and a calming force.

Swim! Best of Pool Design introduces a global array of private and public pools, many representing daring experimentation with location, form and material, pushing the boundaries of creativity and functionality in the design of distinctive and sophisticated facilities. Some designs included:

  • Les Bains des Docks in Le Havre, France (Jean Nouvel);
  • The Tank at the Golden Nugget Hote in Las Vegas, USA (Kirksey Architecture)
  • San Alfonso del Mar in Algarrobo, Chile (Fernando Fischmann)
  • Rooftop pool at the Joule Hotel in Dallas, USA (Adam Tihany)
  • Beijing National Aquatics Centre, China (PTW Architects, Arup, CSCEC, CCDI)
