Rotterdam, a city known for water and sports, is missing a very important element until now: a swimming complex where sports and recreation come together. In a city where events are the rule rather than the exception, it is important to have a bath which is also part of this and can be part of it by making it mobile. A floating bath movable in the Maas. In the 20s to 50s there has been a floating bath located in the city called ‘the Fort’. A pool of 35 x 14 meters with a closed shell and an open interior space.
