Yarra Pools is currently conducting research to understand the needs of future users of a Yarra Pool.
We want to understand what’s important to the community and how can we incorporate this into the Pool design and operation.
Stage 1 of the user needs analysis focused on understanding the views of peak bodies and community organisations. This culminated in the formulation of our ‘design principles’ across 5 themes.
The design principles were used by RMIT architecture students through a design studio process to develop 7 new high level concept designs for a proposed Yarra Pool at Enterprize Park. We are now seeking community feedback on these concepts and how they deliver on our design themes of health and wellbeing, place and community, sustainability, environment and heritage, and jobs, economy and innovation.
