Description:
Located in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, near by the Roland Garros tennis courts, the Piscine Molitor opened to Parisians in 1929 and was abandoned during the last 25 years and then became a major spot for rave parties and street art.
It just reopened as a new luxury hotel-club without losing its original Art Deco aesthetic. A project by Colony Capital, Accor and Bouygues, with architects Alain Derbesse, Jacques Rougerie and Alain-Charles Perrot.
Molitor: Ceci n'est pas une piscine / This is not a Swimming Pool traces the saga of these mythical Parisian swimming baths. It investigates its long-awaited re-birth with essays by Ludovic Roubaudi and photographs by Thomas Jorion.
