The pool had its heyday between the 1920s and the 1970s but has since sat unused, at the southern end of Londsands. The Friends of Tynemouth Outdoor Pool, formed in 2012 to look into the potential of the site, have commissioned this fascinating architectural model in Lego®.

Built by Steve Mayes of and incorporating conceptual tensile fabric canopies from Fabric Architecture Limited, the model provides a unique insight into the untapped potential of the outdoor pool.

Steve has worked with Fabric Architecture on several photographic projects of their tensile structures. Both are now looking forward to developing their relationship with future collaborations, combining a joint passion for “the brick” with Steve’s expertise in producing architectural LEGO® models.
