ABSENCE OF WATER

Having been built in the late Victorian period, public lidos and baths were at the peak of their popularity in the 1930s. Gradually, living conditions and tastes have changed, resulting in a drop of attendances, leaving the public pools uneconomical to run. Many fell into decay and many were demolished. Symbols of civic and architectural pride in Victorian times, today only a handful of them remain as a representation of bygone era.

Zumtobel annual report By David Chipperfield Architects and John Morgan studio

Thanks to Zumtobel Group I have received the 22nd artistic annual report and I’m happy to share with you some of my favorites windows!

David Chipperfield chose this concept because, for him, the window is a key element of architectural design, forging the link between light, space and the individual.
