The most beautiful swimming pool in the world

Location: Amsterdam (B)

Year: 2014

Architect: De Architekten Cie

Client: Gemeente Amsterdam



Amsterdam has a new global attraction. The most beautiful public pool in the world can be found in the city. In Amsterdam-North, to be exact.


Het Parool reports that Noorderparkbad won this prestigious award at the Piscine Global trade show for swimming pools in Lyon. The swimming pool, which opened its doors earlier this year to serve as a substitute for the Floraparkbad pool, has been crowned the most beautiful public pool in the world.


"Thanks to its bright, airy architecture, Noorderparkbad municipal swimming pool fits in perfectly with its surroundings. The wooden structure eases the transition between outside and inside, inviting visitors to enter this gently curved pavilion nestled in the heart of the park," the jury says.
