The unique idea of 3 overheated New Yorkers, this concept for a new floating public pool in the waters around Manhattan could be a welcome relief from the sweltering city heat. Their project, the +Pool, is currently raising support through a Kickstarter campaign and matches the iconic ‘+’ shape of the cities intersections. What makes the design really different? In order to give swimmers a direct connection to the river, the pool will utilize a unique green tech filtration system within it’s walls to fill itself directly from the surrounding river… and because of it’s shape, it will be able to be sectioned off for multiple uses, from free swim to swim meets.
Currently the project is seeking funding for it’s initial filtration system testing. To see how you can help, be sure to float by their Kickstarter campaign for a full rundown of the project and to look at their cool +Pool themed rewards for support.
