This thesis is the design of a center for aquatic sport for the City of Santa Barbara. The design supports a variety of rituals to be acted out by users including infant nonswimmers, elite international competitors, and citizens of all ages seeking to recreate their bodies and spirits. The term "metafigural", invented in my effort to describe an attitude toward architecture and space making, is introduced here. And, the images in this thesis represent the last of several design iterations in each of which I sought to further manifest the attributes of "metafigurality".
