The Swimmingpool project is an experimental swimming pool.
The form, the colours, the size of the swimming pools are sculptural and are surrounded by a 400m athletics track, willow tree fence, music, natural and manmade landscape and becomes on all encompassing experience.
The Swimmingpool will be used as a sculpture theatre and ice-skating ring in the winter months.
Swimmingpool spirit merges the poetry of the wildness of nature and the strong vision of art, architecture and music. The different elements of the Swimmingpool project help the swimmer to discover new aspect of themselves.
