The Changing Nature of Outdoor Swimming


HCMA Architecture + Design
Darryl Condon

Summary: This presentation examines two trends - 1) the move towards the natural treatment of water in outdoor pools, and 2) outdoor, urban swimming experiences (in rivers, lakes, and oceans) - their underlying principles, precedents from across the world, as well as operational, Health Act and planning implications. The presentation concludes with two hypothetical projects designed by the presenter whose goal is to test these trends and determine their suitability in the Canadian context.
