If you’re enjoying London’s hot weather this week, why not imagine doing so while swimming in mid-air?
Arup Associates has designed an innovative ‘sky pool’, a 25-metre-long swimming pool which will bridge two blocks of apartments in Nine Elms, south London.
The pool, inspired by aquariums, will be completely transparent, affording swimmers with striking views of the city as they paddle and tread water.
Apartment developer Ballymore Group’s CEO, Sean Mulryan, said: “The Sky Pool’s transparent structure is the result of significant advancements in technologies over the last decade. The experience of the pool will be truly unique, it will feel like floating through the air in central London.”
