Chameleon effect and energy recovery - how was Park Wodny in Tychy created?
Wodny Park in Tychy is the most energy-efficient water park in Poland, and maybe even in Europe. The innovative, multi-award-winning building takes colourful to the next level. With its stunning Rockpanel Chameleon facades, it attracts a lot of attention.
Façade inspiration: the waves of the Paprocańskie Lake
Architects duo Paweł Kobierzewski and Andrzej Truszczyński wanted to create a building that would fit perfectly into the surroundings of Tychy. Compared to the rest of the Silesia area, Tychy is a relatively young city that develops very dynamically on many levels. One of the key inspirations was Lake Paprocańskie. Liquid forms and breaking waves therefore became a theme in the architecture.
Architect Andrzej Truszczyński explains: “Our goal was to create the most unique design. Something unlike any other parks of this type. We were looking for elements that spoke to the inhabitants. Finding a main theme that would be compatible with the green environment in the south of the city was not easy. Eventually, we found our inspiration close to home. We decided to refer to the nature and dynamic, wavy shapes of the Paprocańskie Lake, which people are very proud of.”
