The fabulous, large-format photos capture the most beautiful and varied pools in countries around the Mediterranean, Europe and America. Each in its own context is special and has a unique design. This volume illustrates modern swimming pools that have all been integrated into their local environment and designed or restored according to the latest trends in architectural design. A treat for the senses and a book that just lets you drift away.
