Tidal Pool

Just below the citywalls of St.Malo at the shore of the Atlantic Ocean a tidal pool offers a place to swim also when it is low tide. With high tide the pool fills itself. Combined with a diving board it is assured of success and a attraction for the city. During daytime visitors of the beach and the pool cross the city carrying towels and flippers.


Brittany in France has a network of Eco-lodges which offer temporary housing or hotel facilities in the middle of a natural environment. This is a good example of small scale light urbanism which could be a way to inhabit attractive landscapes surrounding the city. Light urbanism comes together with a concept of slowness and remoteness. Limited infrastructure should conserve the natural quality of the landscapes.
