Dive In – Architecture that Makes a Splash
Forget the cold and bask in the warm glow of good design and glorious pools.
Words by Phoebe Houston Lowe
We are cold, and if you're here in NZ you probably are too. So here is a collection of gorgeous pools and outdoor settings to provide you with a few moments of respite. Or if your one of the lucky ones in the Northern Hemisphere, here's just some inspiration for your afternoon full of swimming possibilities.
Pools have an enigmatic quality to them - Who has one? Who has access to one? Who's is the best? Who's is heated? Who cares? - We do.
The human fascination with the sweet, blissful depths of the aqua marine provide a wonderful opportunity for innovative design and creative expression - so often achieved in the form of a pool.
David Hockney had a healthy obsession with pools during the mid 20th century, and the works from his recent retrospective at the Tate have inspired our own passion for the body of H20 residing in the backyards of the lucky few.
