Text description provided by the architects. The new aquatic centre asked to meet the needs of future competitions as well as the availability as a new swimming teaching facility and public pools.
The project is articulated by a system of garden through which the four pools are connected.
A flooded landscape planted with species typical of tropical wetlands provides separation of private and public spaces.
The program required a complex system of bathrooms and changing rooms for swimmers and the public, All this areas are beneath the aquatic gardens.
A set of courtyards below ground level give natural illumination to them and provide a meeting space and warm up area for competitors and swimers.
