The public-pools research explores the history, form, social, and cultural aspects of the swimming pool as an architectural type. The research is organized as a catalog of the 62 New York City public pools and collection of drawings, photographs, and writings highlighting broader issues related to urban waters. The pool serves as a device to engage specific aspects of public space and architectural invention while revealing the undercurrents of urban policy.
