Swimming pool in Lake Zürich

With 1,200 swimmers per day on average, ”Hallenbad City”, the current indoor swimming pool in the centre of Zürich is very popular. However, this swimming pool needs renovation and will be closed in 2010 for a period of 2 years. To replace the current indoor swimming pool in this period, the architects Kathi Menziger and Felix Peyer have developed an interesting concept for a new swimming pool (photo below) in Lake Zürich. In the sponsor brochure, I read that Ms. Menziger and Mr. Peyer have calculated the costs for building the swimming pool, which can be ready in 21 months, to be CHF 7.3 Million. You can read more about the project in this NZZ online article.
