+ Pool is an initiative by a group of architects and designers to builda floating pool in the rivers of New York City.

The project was launched with the ambition to improve the use of the city's natural resources by providing a clean and safe way for the public to swim in New York's waters.

An offshore reflection of the city intersection, + Pool both exemplifies the dense, busy character of New York City and  offers an island retreat from it.

Its universally recognizable shape and unusual offshore siting                                                         immediately position + Pool as an iconic piece of public infrastructure. Whether as a compliment to a thriving park or catalyst for a growing one, the pool can serve as a destination for weekend visitors, an island haven for busy locals, and a symbol for the surrounding neighborhood.


We at WCIP lift our pina coladas and lower our sunglasses to applaud this forward thinking idea from Play Lab, a local NY think tank and dream factory.
