"The Swimming Pool That Turned Into A Museum"

In the last few years of the 20th century, the Mayor of Lille in northern France was presented with a dilemma. The old swimming pool in the small town of Roubaix had been closed in 1985 due to safety problems. It could have been knocked down and replaced with a new building, however, the locals were very fond of the pool, and it was a stunning example of Art Deco architecture.

The health and safety issues meant that the building could no longer be used for as a pool. Yet it was a beautiful building. A creative solution was needed.

The final decision: turn it into a museum! Take a peek!
