Tidal Swimming Pool - Leça da Palmeira
- The idea of relating man to nature is necessary but also a highly poetic cause, apart from being a founding principle of architecture. Throughout history, successive examples of this relationship have arisen, and this work is surely one of them. The invisibility of the Leça Swimming Pool, especially due the project's simplicity through a few walls, "using" natural elements as an integral part of the swimming pool's architecture, make this work by Álvaro Siza timeless and sublime in its relationship with the natural surroundings. Leça Swimming Pool will grow old as the rocky formations around it erode; the pool is already an integral part of the place.
