American-style decadence and comfort are no better epitomized than by the swimming pool there are now an estimated 3.8 million in-ground pools in the U.S. In The New American Swimming Pool: Innovations in Design and Construction: 40 Case Studies, editor James Grayson Trulove (The New American Garden) carefully surveys 40 particularly striking forms urban, suburban, oceanside and country to isolate swimming pools' aesthetic and functional elements. Waterfalls, rock gardens, modernist geometries, dramatic illumination, tiling and terracing are all deployed. With its site plans, lists of materials and more than 300 color photos, the book will make a valuable reference for architects, landscape architects and homeowners some willing to swallow unbearable envy, others to dream or try some small-scale renovations.
