Pools built in the 1930s are often sleek and elegant—and this lavish volume captures their unique beauty in a series of spectacular photographs. Architectural historian Christopher Beanland picks the best examples from around the world, including the nearly 450-foot-deep seawater pool in Vancouver, Canada; Siza's concrete sea pools in Porto, Portugal; and the restored art deco pool in Saltdean, UK. There’s also plenty of historical background, plus interviews with pool users around the globe.
Architecture critic and water baby Christopher Beanland takes a deep dive into the fashionable outdoor swimming scene with Lido, profiling the world's best pools with his trademark wit, wisdom and pop culture references. Stylish photography and interviews with fellow lido enthusiasts only further add gloss to Beanland's delightful new book. -- Steve Pill, Discover Britain
