Long Bridge Park Aquatics Center

Arlington, VA

Project Description

The Long Bridge Aquatics & Fitness Center will be Arlington’s first free-standing aquatics center. The proposed design is elegant and energy efficient solution that embraces the surrounding landscape and welcomes visitors with two civic-scaled entry porches clad in wood.

The focal 50-meter pool is surrounded by decks and the facility will also include a second leisure/family pool, a fitness center and community rooms. The design is program driven and inclusive; it supports sustainability emphasizing everyday connections of the community and environment while also promoting the integration of public space, landscape and architecture.
