Swimming and water exercise are popular activities among all ages and at all skill levels. We use swimming centres to exercise, relax and enjoy ourselves with our families. Centres are being renovated in many places, or new ones built, with architecture that matches the varying purposes and user scenarios.
In this feature series, you can read about 16 trends for the swimming centres of the future – trends that the International Association for Sports and Leisure Facilities (IAKS) NGO has compiled in a report.
You can also take a look at a number of projects where function and design go hand in hand, for example through the use of Troldtekt acoustic solutions. Read about the recently built and beautifully situated Frederikssund Swimming Centre, the colourful new Vitalbad in Kusel, Germany, and the Isfuglen clubhouse for winter bathers at Brøndby harbour.
