Project Description from the Architects:

Piscine du Fort was conceived as a praxis of lucidity, transparency and architectonic fluidity, where natural light defines the spatial experience.

Programmatic elements are organised as sweeping curvilinear forms immersed within the spatial continuum of the project. The composition of elements simultaneously creates a porosity, allowing light to flood the interior, whilst delineatingseperate functions within the structure with strong individual identities.The façades, fabricated from undulating golden timber, express the circular motions of water, making reference to energy circulation and centrepetal flux.

The building envelope has been worked and molded tosoften the linear effect of the volume, and introduces variation in the perception of the form.
