This is awesome! Should I say incredible? Yh i think awesome is quiet suiting here.
But have you head? Compass Pools, a UK-based pool maker, is currently hashing out what it calls the “Infinity London,” a 55-story skyscraper topped with a 360-degree pool with transparent walls. The building, which was designed from top to bottom by the company, will include a five-star hotel, and the pool is expected to be the main attraction.
Making a pool suitable for sticking atop a 55-story building posed some serious technical hurdles for the company, but they think they’ve got it all figured out. Rather than glass, the entire pool will be made of acrylic, with a transparent bottom that will allow visitors on lower floors to see the pool and swimmers high above.
Compass Pools came up with an idea, which they say is based on the airlock of a submarine. It’s described as “a rotating spiral staircase” that will “[rise]from the pool floor when someone wants to get in or out.” The company says the Infinity London could be under construction as early as 2020 “if all the partners and contractors are confirmed.”
It’s all incredibly strange and awesome and terrifying at the same time.
