Small Pools by Fanny Tagavi, Pere Planells

With lush photography, designer's sketches and descriptive text, Small Pools presents an array of 28 pool projects-none larger than 550 sq. feet — from around the world. Inspiring and affordable, the pools featured here also all show great respect for the natural spaces in which water areas have been integrated, merging perfectly with their surroundings. From the tranquil fluidity of a cliffside sheet of turquoise water to an imaginative repurposing of an old quarry to much, much more, Small Pools shows in the numerous possibilities incorporating a pool into all sorts of properties.
