  La Piscine
by filipdebont

Of course it sounds a bit strange to visit a museum of Art in a former swimming pool.

But this is (was) not just a swimming pool, och no it was a beauty of architecture. Completely build in the Art-deco style.

But due to the uprising chlorine smoke, the concrete of the ceiling was damaged, and it was not safe anymore to use this place as a public swimming pool.

So many years after its closing it is completely restored and used as a museum. If you ask me a magnificent initiative.

Address: Rue de la l'espérance 23
