I found these photographs of abandoned London pools to be extremely interesting. The pools are gorgeous but I wonder why no one is using them.
From BLDG Blog
Polar Inertia‘s newest issue featuring beautiful photographs of abandoned swimming pools throughout the greater London area.
… “From marble-clad baths dripping in history to modern leisure centres echoing with lifeguards’ whistles, London is swimming in them.”
Except, of course, many of its pools are also drained and forgotten.
The photos here are all by Gigi Cifali, who originally trained as a topographer, from a series called “Absence of Water.” The images document the disused pools of London – and there are many more of these photos to be seen over at Polar Inertia or on Cifali’s own website.
