UK-based pool manufacturer Compass Pools
has revealed plans that are underway to build the world?s first rooftop
360-degree infinity pool to tower above London. Slated to sit atop a
720-foot 55-story building, the 600,000-liter pool is entirely made of
cast acrylic, allowing swimmers a clear view of the city skyline, as
well as the five-star hotel underneath. The bottom of the pool is also
designed to be transparent, so it could act as a skylight. At night it
will light up with color-changing lights to give the tower the
appearance of a sparkling jewel at night. Swimmers will access the pool
through a rotating spiral staircase based on the door of a submarine,
rising from the pool floor when someone wants to get in or out. Named
Infinity London Tower, the ambitious project could kick off construction
as early as 2020.
