In 2008 Herrera Town Council launched an architectural competition to design a public swimming pool in Herrera.
The MEDIOMUNDO arquitectos proposal is a low intensity project that is at once able to create several different interrelated spaces that function within the surrounding landscape. Our aim was to economize effort, resources and materials while making the most of various scales and time scales.
We proposed a compact construction with clearly differentiated accesses that occupies a minimal part of the plot thus reducing the costs of intervention. The building itself lies parallel to the street and functions as a permeable shadow that funnels visitors into the various facilities on offer.
