Today, as I was sitting by the bedroom window, I let my eyes wander over the Spreewaldbad and it’s strange roof with a multitude of skylights. They seem to be placed totally at random, their sizes, their position, but that makes it so appealing and I often wondered if this design was the original plan, or if they added those skylights as an afterthought because the pool seemed unbearably gloomy without sunlight from above. And what’s with all these lightning rods? What do you need that many for? Was that also part of the original design or did lightning strike disproportionally often into the Spreewaldbad, so that they had to install so many just to be on the safe side. I also wonder what the skylights will look like from underneath when you’re looking up while doing backstrokes in the wave pool, alas they don’t admit platypuses into the Spreewaldbad which is and outrage, bearing in mind that we are a semiaquatic species. Oh well, another reason to stay indoors I guess.
