Fancy A Swim?

for myself,

 given my fear of heights, this is one pool I would give a miss to, designed to span over 80 feet and connect a pair of apartment structures in London, this see-through glass pool will give swimmers the ultimate view of the city on all sides, the real-life version coming in 2017 will indeed be as shown, developed by Arup Associates in collaboration with project architects of HAL, this water bridge will be 15 feet wide and 9 feet, framed in thick but transparent glass on three sides,

 aquarium specialists and engineers were consulted throughout to ensure the safety of the endeavour, 

this residential project is part of a larger overhaul being orchestrated by Frank Gehry and Foster + Partners

a master plan which includes eight other major architectural features and renovations surrounding the historic Battersea Power Station on the bank of the River Thames in London, I think I will keep to the in ground pools, I have to say I would have thought they would have used acrylic and not glass, but there it is.
