Zwembad De Schalk

THE ABANDONED POOL IN BELGIUM

Architect De Smet built this ‘Gemeentelijk Zwembad Schalk’. It is the local swimming pool in his hometown Willebroek. The indoor pool has been abandoned since 2001, the pool didn’t meet the modern standards for swimming pools.

To make the indoor pool modern again was too expensive. As a result the buildings were sold by the city. Some art and culture expos were held in the building just before it was demolished. Today the site of the old pool is part of a living quarter. The apartments are also named ‘De Schalk’. I visited the abandoned ‘Gemeentelijk Zwembad De Schalk’ in 2006.
