Ave Art Gallery
Tehrān, Iran
A 200 square metre swimming pool (10m by 20m) in the garden of a painter and designer has been rehabilitated into his art gallery. A lightweight roof, supported on a sloped truss, has covered the pool. The depth of the pool is completely used and a series of interior stairs leading to the floor of the gallery are suspended from the same truss.
