Y House model on view in Domestic Pools exhibition at Villa Noailles from 11 February 2018
Following on from “
The 2018 architecture exhibition, “Domestic Pools”, will focus upon private swimming pools considering their initial appearance in modern homes — for which the villa Noailles serves as a notable example — to contemporary experimentations. This exhibition will retrace the architectural devices employed for bathing and also cover both vernacular and industrial types of private pools whose technical innovations have progressively rendered them accessible to the middle classes.
The exhibition includes swimming pools designed by architects including Alain Capeillères, Adolf Loos, Aires Mateus, Albert Frey, Alvar Aalto, Andreas Angelidakis, Arquitectonica, Barozzi Veiga, Ricardo Bofill, Didier Faustino, Richard England,
