'les bains des docks' by jean nouvel

 

 

photographs of the recently completed ‘les bains des docks’ aquatic centre in le havre, france designed by jean nouvel have begun to surface. the mostly white space is very light in feel, while a brightly coloured alcove pops with vitality. the complex features multiple pools some of which are the typical rectangle shape, while some such as the main indoor pool is very geometric and split among multiple levels. the project is part of the city’s port redevelopment plans.
