Springboard in the Pond: An Intimate History of the Swimming Pool
Thomas A. P. van Leeuwen (au); Helen Searing (ed). Investigates the swimming pool (SP) as a quintessentially modern & American space, reflecting America’s infatuation with hygiene, skin, & recreation. Looks at the domestic SP & discovers an icon indispensable to the reading of 20th-century modernism. At one level, this book is a rereading of modern architect. At another level, it is the story of the origin & evolution of the private SP as a building type & cultural artifact. And at still another level, it is a material philosophy of water. Explores the human relationship to water from a variety of viewpoints: social, religious, artistic, sexual, psychological, technical, & above all architectural. The book’s many illustrations -- drawings, plans, & photos -- create a provocative visual archive of the SP.
