In the last few years of the twentieth century the Mayor of Lille in northern France had a quandary. The old swimming pool in the small town of Roubaix had been closed in 1985 due to safety problems. So, why not simply knock the old building down? What was the problem? The swimming pool was a stunningly beautiful example of Art Deco architecture. Time for a peculiarly French solution.
