THE NORTH CHARLESTON PUBLIC POOL IS A GEM SITUATED IN THE HEART OF THE IN INDUSTRIAL SHIPYARDS OF SOUTH CAROLINA. THE PROJECT REPRESENTS THE REALIZATION OF ARCHITECTURE AS ARTWORK. WHILE THERE IS A LOT TO BE SAID FOR THE GENERIC FORM IN
ARCHITECTURE THE WELL DEFINED FORM CAN OFTEN SEREVE BOTH THE INTENDED FUNCTION AS WELL AS THE FUNCTION OF BRINGING ART TO THE PUBLIC THROUGH ARCHITECTURAL FORM.
the site, in North Charleston, is very industrial and a very specific design language is found throughout. For the N.C.P.P I began with the idea of creating an oasis in the 'sea of cement' that exists as the initial site.
As I worked on crating the 'oasis' in North Charleston I decided that it would be interesting to incorporate a pattern that immediately linked to the idea of an oasis, what better to do this than a Hawaiian print. The print is a work of international artist Michael Lin, and was applied to a tennis court in 2005.
