September 17 & 18 in Deauville


The Deauville swimming pool is 50 years old

Inaugurated in July 1966, the Deauville swimming pool was hailed from the start with its remarkable architecture, combining technological prowess and the use of new materials. Inaugural project in the career of architect Roger Taillibert, it uses the process of thin pre-stressed concrete sails with long spans, and confirms Roger Taillibert as one of the best specialists in a process then applied to his following achievements: the stadium Parc des Princes in Paris (1967-1972) and the Montreal Olympic Complex (1972-1976).

Through the magic of a daring achievement, Roger Taillibert propels Deauville into modernity and its architecture on the threshold of a historic destiny.
