Paris, France



À propos

Paris and its metropolitan area are an ideal testing ground for Studio Baignade Urbaine. Its economic heartland stretches around several rivers (the Marne, the Bièvre), one river (the Seine) and numerous canals (the Ourcq, Saint-Martin, etc.) of varying degrees of urbanity and natural beauty. 


In some cases, swimming is not at the very centre of the project. The focus is on the link between the city and nature, to offer an ecological vision of the waterfront. Here you will find many contrasting examples of developments along these waterways. With their different designs, they are proof that geographical location is inextricably linked to the choice of development for a local authority.


Finally, after exploring the link between bathing and urban regeneration, we offer a final set of examples showing that this leisure activity can also give rise to a new economic activity, notably through the creation of private spas or the commercial operation of bathing clubs.


We invite you to scroll through them for a journey into the future of the Île-de-France region.
