Located in Vienna, the Therme Wien by 4a Architekten is a spectacular new spa and pool complex with a particularly excellent diving set up. On that, the architect hoped to reference the rocky cliffs the sport developed from, and there is some success in the vision. Most superb is the use of color, mosaic panels of rich oranges and deep blues cast soothing light through the entire resort. Each color also serves to delineated spatial usage. The deeper portions of the pool, for example, corresponds to blue.

Plus, there are water slides. Everyone loves water slides.
