LCLAOFFICE –XI Souther American Games Aquatic Center

The new aquatic center asked to meet the needs of future competitions as well as the availability as a new swimming teaching facility and public pools. The project is articulated by a system of gardens through which the four pools are connected. A flooded landscape planted with species typical of tropical wetlands provides separation of private and public spaces.

The program required complex system of bathrooms and changing rooms for swimmers and the public. All these areas are beneath the aquatic gardens. A set of courtyards below ground level naturally illuminate them and provide a meeting space and warm up area for competitors and swimmers.
