Leca Swimming Pools [Alvaro Siza]

Alvaro Siza’s Leca Swimming Pools are a dramatic example of architecture in the landscape. Cut directly into the stone around the ocean the pools have an extraordinary view to the sea. The entry to the pools is interesting because as one steps onto the ramp at the entry the view to the street and the ocean are both cut off and as one emerges from the singular path the dramatic view of the ocean unfolds beyond the pools.
