It is once again the season where we celebrate the form and function that aquatics facilities offer in their many incarnations – from college competition pools to massive waterparks, to the backbone of this industry, family aquatics centers.

Every summer, through our Dream Designs gallery, Aquatics International recognizes a handful of design teams for creating facilities that not only serve the functional needs of each facility’s clientele, but do it in a way that adds beauty to one’s life as well.

Later this month, we will reveal this year’s 10 Dream Designs honorees. In preparation, let’s take a look back at some stellar examples of what is possible.
