World's first all-glass 'Sky Pool' to be built 25 stories above London
LONDON - A developer in England claims it is building the world's first all-glass swimming pool suspended 10 stories up in the air between two buildings.
Arup Associates will collaborate with aquarium specialists Reynolds to construct the 82-foot-long pool, to be dubbed the "Sky Pool". The pool will be made of thick glass that will allow swimmers to see through to the streets of London below.
"The experience of the pool will be truly unique, it will feel like floating through the air in central London," said Sean Mulryan, from the company Ballymore, which is working with Arup Associates.
The Sky Pool is being built above the grounds of the new U.S. Embassy, a location that is host to more than 2,000 luxury flats.
