“The approach was to look at the pool like a character with many histories, many cultures — a birth in 1929 and today, a certain maturity,” said designer Jean-Philippe Nuel, who designed the interiors at the new Molitor. “The challenge was to connect these two points — its birth and current renaissance — with sometimes contradictory facets, like the 1930s windows next to a bomb of spray paint… Two worlds that have nothing to do with one another, and suddenly connecting them with a thread.”

And so the urban haven of graffiti artistry that overlook Piscine Molitor during its 25-year closure was not ignored, it was respected as a nod to its eventual rebirth and so its memory remains with new urban art inside the complex.
