Old Town Swimming Pool Converted into a Magnificent Museum for Tourists (19 pics)

This swimming pool in the small town of Roubaix, France was closed in 1985 as a result of safety concerns. A vault under the pool was weakened from fifty years of supporting the weight of the water and the council believed it may collapse. Rather than closing down the beautiful Art  Deco building in which the pool was built, the pool was repaired and the building, La Piscine, was reopened to the public as a museum.

someone needs to explain to the town council that it already WAS art as a beautiful swimming pool / building.

there is such a thing as over-embelishment in life.
