Jacques Ferrier Architecture has built an aquatic park that resembles an unfolding landscape. This new type of landmark is not an element which has been imposed on the topography, but an extension of the landscape itself, seeming to emerge from the lake. It is an aerial construction, layering hanging gardens, playing with water and transparency.
A circuit offers a walk surround the building, extending the board walk promenade. A lift offers the occasion to climb to the top of the walk to enjoy the view. As the origami unfolds, it creates empty spaces. These spaces are filled by large glass panels that let natural light into the aquatic centre and give visitors the sensation of a continuity between the interior and exterior.
