It is the story of the origin and evolution of the private swimming pool as a building type and cultural artifact. ... Van Leeuwen explores the human relationship to water from a variety of viewpoints: social, religious, artistic, sexual, psychological, technical, and above all architectural."--BOOK JACKET.
