Domestic Pools is the name of the project that tells the story of twenty of the most beautiful private swimming pools from 1920 to the present day, including that of Villa dall’Ava by Rem Koolhaas and the unpublished project of the 1940s by Alvaro Aalto. The series of photographs in the article, are part of the reportage of the young French photographer Romain Laprade dedicated to the swimming pool of the white oasis, designed by Alain Capeillères for his summer residence.
This pool is a very strong aesthetic symbol, enhanced by the photos of the photographer, which connect it to an imaginary minimal and elegant. The shadows that stand out on the walls create a mystical atmosphere as if the whole environment were poised, suspended in time.
