Over 180 stunning color images will take you through a tour of GAVA (Global AquaTekture Visionary Awards) worthy pool, spa, and water environment concepts from open ranchland to inner city estates, from beach front properties in Australia to a villa in Portugal. The visionaries who created the 66 award-winning projects presented here reached past the mundane, the ordinary, or the expected to deliver memorable, distinctive, and noteworthy applications. The fourth annual water-inspired design competition lured architects, interior designers, builders, and designers from across the globe to share their projects in the hopes of earning a GAVA. Their unique perspectives will have you wondering, "How did they think of that?" Fulfilling the desires of their clients, designers crafted inspiring settings incorporating design elements such as infinity edges, all-tile interiors, freeform shapes, natural stone, perimeter overflow, acrylic panels, and indoor installation pools. For anyone passionate about residential or commercial AquaTekture, this book will be a treasure trove of inspiration.
