|Guildford Aquatic Centre|
The Guildford Aquatic Centre is an expansion to the existing Guildford Recreation Centre. The new Aquatic Centre is a recreation and therapeutic aquatic destination, providing training opportunities for swimming, water polo, and other aquatic sports as well as the capacity to host competitive swimming events. The unique architectural and urban design features of the aquatic centre provide the community of Guildford with a world class facility. The design is conceived as a magic box with the pixelated precast concrete exterior acting in tension with the white pearl natatorium interior. The charcoal tones of the precast concrete present an animated facade in symphony with the transparent curtain wall, creating a rhythm of solid and void.
