dc.description.abstractArchitecture can amplify aspects of life. The proposal in this thesis is to present the nature of competitive swimming through four specifically defined architectural moments. The vehicle for the thesis is a natatorium with four specifically designed architectural apertures that present the extraordinary motion of the swimmer, especially to the younger general public. The focus will be on the motion of swimming below and above the surface of the water. Below the water surface, the approaching swimmer and the moment of the turn will be framed. Above the water surface, two apertures penetrate the roof above the pool. One directs sightlines to moment of a race's start, while the other seeks to emphasize the linearity of swimming.en_US
