The swimming pool: a daring achievement

One of the first projects in France by architect Roger Taillibert is the construction of the Deauville swimming pool. It is also his subject of diploma at ENSBA. He opted for a daring realization far from the “Norman” style then in vogue on the Côte Fleurie and implemented a process of thin long-range sails, tested in the early 1960s and in which he became the specialist. The seawater swimming pool will be inaugurated in July 1966 by Maurice Chevalier, Marie Laforêt and the Minister of Sports at the time, Françoise Missoffe, and Alain Gotvalles, French champion of the 100 meters crawl. Technological prowess and the use of new materials ensured the success of Roger Taillibert's achievements. This program is for him the first of a series of sports facilities, including the stadium of the Parc des Princes in Paris (1967 -1972) and the Olympic complex in Montreal (1972 -1976).
