Swim city


Urban swimming is more popular than ever. When it comes to swimming in rivers, Swiss cities are international trailblazers. Moreover, in places like London, New York, Paris, and Berlin, increasing numbers of people are seeking access to the rivers, harbours, and canals in the built environment. Rivers and their banks are gradually being seen as natural public resources, a place of leisure that is both convenient and firmly anchored in everyday life. Together with an exhibition at the Swiss Architecture Museum, this book documents this recent phenomenon, exploring how cities can reclaim their waters as a spatial resource and sustainably improve the quality of urban life.
