Swimming Pool Art

How could I not like a swimming pool that was also a work of art, AND looked like an art quilt?

Bizarrely, this pool is outside Edinburgh, Scotland; not in Spain, Portugal or southern France. It’s at an outdoor sculpture garden called Jupiter Artland, and is called “Gateway.” I don’t know how much use it will get in that climate, but you can book a slot for swimming until August 22.

The tile grout lines look like nothing so much as grid quilting to me.

  1. Isn’t that amazing?? And it’s so interesting to see it there, against the staid formal gardens . . .
