Hamilton Aqua Centre:
Set In Stone

The Aqua Centre is situated in the heart of downtown Hamilton, at the corner of King and Bay street. The centre emerges as a stone that has landed in the city and cracked itself open to the city. The ease of movement and weightlessness defined by bodies of water render the connections, while rigid volumes define thresholds. A civic courtyard sits at the heart of the project as it invites the community to engage with the spaces. Interconnectivity between spaces, materials and the users intensifies the narrative of the experience and enforces a dialogue between the city and the people.
