Having completed more than twelve public Aquatics Centers across Canada in the past decade, Hughes Condon Marler Architects has developed significant architectural expertise in the design of pools without having ever defaulted to a repetitive aesthetic. Pools: Aquatic Architecture traces the evolution of those ideas, beginning at Eileen Dailly Leisure Pool, all the way through to current projects being developed in Surrey, British Columbia. Through orthographic drawings, diagrams, professional photography and editorial text, the strategies employed in each project are clearly illustrated. Editorial direction by Trevor Boddy examines seven completed Aquatics Centres and delves into the design process of one building that is currently under development, in order to bring to light the origin and evolution of ideas that have become HCMA’s architectural ethos.
