The aim of the team in this competition was to design a project that allowed the construction of a swimming pool complex exemplary from the point of view of energy-environment, proposing an integrated production process of the project, where the contributions from all areas of expertise, the architecture to the various engineering specialties and their integration into the built fabric, are properly assessed and incorporated, resulting in a project that will allow the construction of a sustainable building in its global assumption, ie the design, construction, utilization, but also, in the demolition.
It was against this background that this project was approached from its earlier stage, representing a constant challenge to creativity, capacity for achievement and innovation of an entire team, architects and engineers, in search of excellence not only architectural, to respond fully to the functions that was aimed, but also in the aspect of environmental sustainability and energy efficiency.
Conservation of energy, low environmental impact and low emission of pollutants, were the key words.
