This municipal swimming pool designed by Aileen Sage Architects was created to provide people with an inclusive positive space.

It is located in Australia's Biennale pavilion and uses a minimalist style -- with white walls accented by deep blue designs and identical metal beach chairs littered throughout. The company was inspired to create the pool due to its significance in Australian culture, working as a means to facilitate nondiscriminatory social interaction in a bright and positive space.

With this at the core of its inspiration, it is said to symbolize spiritually at the "basic human level," and survival -- represented by the water. The pool was officially opened by Olympic swimmer Ian Thorpe at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2016 event, which runs until the end of November -- after which time the pool will be closed.
