Crafting the perfect aquatics venue is never simple. Whether a community complex, luxury resort pool or full-scale destination waterpark, the team must juggle sometimes-conflicting objectives gracefully.

The teams behind this year's AI Dream Designs projects accomplished just that.

Each year, Aquatics International honors 10 aquatics facilities of all types -- family aquatic centers, waterparks, sprayparks, competition pools, resort pools, waterpark resorts, etc -- for their artistry, innovation and responsiveness to their community's needs.

See how the designers behind these beautiful facilities earned their honors.
