das stadtbad (Municipal swimming pool)

Architects cukrowicz.nachbaur

Worth a visit, especially by families, is the redesigned old swimming pool dating back from the 1960s. A sports pool and the parent-and-child area have been added to the existing pool. The entire exterior skin of the swimming pool is made of copper. A fully enclosed black body towers above the new swimming pool, with multi-media effects accentuating the visual and acoustic outcome in the respective areas.
