Hamilton Aqua Centre:

Growth is a fundamental constant existing on all scales of life. The City of Hamilton for example is rapidly growing into a destination for younger people looking to live affordably in the city. The large-scale growth of the city happens over time and is influenced by large-scale change factors such as economy and infrastructure. On a smaller scale, a person may also grow over time. Personal growth is only different from city-level growth in the quicker and smaller-scale changes such as body and mind. In placing a small scale growth-oriented program (YMCA), onto a large scale growth-oriented site (Hamilton), how can a symbiotic relationship between the two unite people and the city around them?
