The “Open Monument” project is a permanent public space installation, by MAI_lab | MAIpublicspace, that wants to recover the link between the inhabitants of Crestuma, and its landscape history. At the same time, the design aims to boost an experimental, pedagogical and participative realm that should develop new senses of appropriation and belonging.

AD Classics: Leça Swimming Pools / Alvaro Siza

Photo by Veronica Aguilar - http://www.flickr.com/photos/lynsey_wells83/

Since its completion in 1966 the Leça Swimming Pool complex, by Portuguese architect , has been an internationally recognized building. Still almost half a century later, it has gracefully retained its architectural integrity and remained a popular retreat. The Leça Swimming Pools has established itself as one of Siza’s greatest early works, and as an example of his careful reconciliation between nature and his design.
