This amazing swimming pool at Quintay, by Tomás García de la Huerta, struck me for it`s chaotic elegance and use of the constraints the elevation provided. The materials used are very unpretentious, but striking in their combinations – eg. the contrast between the light, rough wood slats and the dark, smooth granite ceramic tiles. This is what “modern” is for me.
