Fall 2011. Prof. John Ronan.
The aquatic center—pools, saunas, steam rooms, and park—is based on a bottomup
approach where materiality dictates design. The project explores the use of acrylic
chambers to dematerialize form and allow atmospheric conditions to provide visual
legibility. As the visual boundaries disappear and reappear, it is the flux of conditions
that governs the perception of the aquatic center.
