A SWIMMING COMPETITION FROM THE PIER TO THE NEW DIVING PLATFORM IN GRADO! WHO WILL BREAK THE OLD RECORDS?
The project signed by Architect and Friends plans to bring swimming back to Grado/Italy. The new diving platform is only part of the overall idea: the virtual swimming lanes start at the end of the pier and extend out into the open sea to where the old diving platform was located until 2012. The lines of the swimming "lanes" shape the structure of the new tower and form the various functions like the platform, a high diving board, two low ones and a sundeck. The crisp lines make the structure look sleek and light, but at the same time offer the confidence to be a focal point for offshore swimmers. The structure can be designed flexibly to adapt to the tides and can be pulled into port in winter.
