About the discussion
Swimming pools, once simple spaces for communal activities, have evolved to encompass diverse needs such as sports, wellness, and relaxation. In response to this cultural shift, the event will tackle questions about the contemporary requirements for pool facilities. How can existing pools be adapted to today's needs? What are the necessary aesthetic adjustments, functional upgrades, and economic considerations? The discussion promises to be a deep dive into the future of swimming pool architecture.
The event will feature distinguished speakers, including Dunya Bouchi, Managing Director of Aedes Metropolitan Laboratory; Andreas Ditschuneit and Martin Reimer, Managing Partners of 4a Architekten GmbH; Dr. Matthias Oloew from Berliner Bäder-Betriebe; and our very own Prof. Katrin Brünjes, Professor of Interior Architecture at Berlin International University of Applied Sciences. The discussion will be moderated by Boris Schade-Bünsow, Editor-in-Chief of Bauwelt, Berlin.
We encourage all students, faculty, and architecture enthusiasts to attend this insightful event, exploring the future of swimming pool design. Your presence will contribute to a vibrant discussion on the transformation of existing pool facilities to meet the demands of today.
