A new aquatic centre provides the rapidly expanding community of Surrey with a world class swimming facility topped by a dramatic roof.


 
The sweeping profile of the new aquatic centre creates a strong presence along 24 Avenue in Surrey, B.C.


 
The roof assembly uses a catenary structure, but with wood members in place of metal cables. Concrete columns provide vertical support at the two ends of the building and at its midpoint.


 
Within the centre, central columns create an informal division between the leisure and competitive pool areas.


 
The leisure swim zone includes a waterslide, lazy ricer, spray feature, and tots’ area, making it a hub for local families.


 
Above the change rooms, a fitness room looks our towards a leafy residential area.


 
Coloured balustrades animate the diving platforms at the end of the Olympic-sized competition pool.
