Event description

Description

Did you get a chance to take a dive in Edmonton's new outdoor pool last summer? We won't be swimming yet, but we will get the opportunity to take a dip into the balance that makes this natural design wonder work.

"The Borden Park Natural Swimming Pool (NSP) is the first chemical-free public outdoor pool to be built in Canada. The NSP replaces an existing pool built in the 1950s with a seasonal pavilion and landscaped pool precinct for the activities of 400 swimmers. At the NSP, the challenge of water quality control, essential to any public bathing facility, is compounded by the scale and the technical demands required to achieve an environmentally healthy and natural filtration process. gh3* married the technologies that cleanse water through stone, gravel, sand, and botanic filtering processes with a materials-oriented concept to achieve a rigorous technically and aesthetically integrated design." - from gh3.ca

The event will be hosted by Carol Bélanger, City Architect at The City of Edmonton and Cyndi Schlosser, Facility Manager at Borden Natural Swimming Pool.

In Situ is a series about design that brings the conversation out of the lecture theatre and into the real world.
