How Pools Designed for Movement Move Minds and People
If you’re considering a pool for the family to get more exercise, you’ll want to read Chris Volk’s “Designs for Movement” article on TheWaterSpace blog. “A lap lane is like a path in water,” Chris writes. Even a simple line along the length of the pool’s bottom “helps us get physical,” he says.
Even if swimming isn’t a priority, you’ll learn how important it is to design a pool environment that creates “paths and patterns in our minds.” Unless you’re a Landscape architect or professional designer, you may not be consciously aware of architectural movement, but “you’ll sense its presence, and you’ll likely find yourself getting bored if a design lacks movement.”
