SANT SEBASTIÀ SWIMMING POOLS
Barcelona, Spain, 2002
Ajuntament de Barcelona
The tile deck of the swimming pool in raised 4m. above the sand beach. The only longitudinal opening creates a visual relationship between the surface of the fresh water with the sea. A club, a restaurant, the changing rooms, a car park and a pelota court complement the indoor pool.
All in bare concrete with a few L.C. details, which requires the Japanese "Tadaoandian" finish. (The vitality of Chandigarh lies also in the imperfection of her concrete).
