The Perfect Concrete Pool - Beton Schwimmbad By Ian Shaw Architekten

Developed by Ian Shaw Architekten, this outdoor swimming pool in Darmstadt is an exercise in tectonic eloquence, a seamless integration of making and thought. The project’s aim was simple but complex: to eliminate any trace of structural expression in order to maximise the visceral impact of the white cast in-situ concrete. This was realised through a bespoke steel frame, which encases the shuttering during construction. The concrete is flawless; there is no evidence of shuttering joints or anchor points, just an unblemished smooth white surface, articulated within an orthogonal form. Its phenomenology enriched by the ethereality of the water and light.
