Tynemouth Outdoor Pool

The Tynemouth Outdoor Pool has been abandoned since the 1970s. Situated on the southern end of Londsands beach, it is now the subject of a community campaign to bring it back into use. As part of the process, a LEGO model was commissioned to show how the redeveloped site could look. A great example of a LEGO model with a practical use, the campaign use the model to help spread word within the local community. 

As this doesn't exist as modelled, this project involved working from a limited number of CGI images of the proposed pool. These plans have changed over the months, and so the model has also gone through a couple of redevelopments - something relatively easy to do with LEGO!
