We designed FLOW as a fiction, a temporary phantasm, a dream made of water. This temporary outdoor swimming pool in Anderlecht was built by many hands: young people from the neighborhood who also contributed their voices during discussions about privatisation and access to public space. Serving both as an example and a provocation, FLOW aims to convince authorities to invest in permanent projects while already offering a real, albeit small, safe and inclusive place to cool down in summer.

FLOW is a project by POOL IS COOL in collaboration with Decoratelier, Art2Work, FIX, Ecoworks en Speculoos + Variable, with cultural programs by Kunstenfestivaldesarts, Zinnema and Cinema Galeries.
