3XN has won the competition to design a new aquatic centre in the Swedish city of Linkoping. Named “Vågen”(The Wave) the scheme seeks to unite the urban with the water – both in form and in function. Located between the Tinnerbäck Lake and Linkoping, the new aquatic centre becomes a hybrid between the city and the lake.

The 1000m2 aquatic complex includes a swimming pool, a hamman, a health club, and an organic cafe. It is an attractive and easily accessible center dedicated to bathing, swimming, and exercising, with flexible hours. It is also a place to relax and socialize with friends, to meet for informal meals and healthy snacks, play, and sun bathe.
Ancillary sports amenities adjoin the aquatic complex and encourage diverse sport practices and games in the middle of the rural park (football and handball fields with tennis courts, jogging, strolling, basketball).

The challenge was to create an economic covering for a state-of-the-art pool. Johannesburg sits on a plateau known as the “highveld,” 5,000 feet above sea level, with earth rich in iron ore, causing frequent lightning strikes. Although the climate is temperate, night-time temperatures can drop significantly. The new pool was required to be both covered and heated.
