Berlin 2004

The first drops of crystalline water in Spree. Following up the tradition of river pools in 19th century, main idea has been born – to create the first, in stream floating, swimming pool. An old cargo shiff has been rebuilt and its form has been copied by two sundecks. On the riverbank, there could be found the artificial sand beach wit a bar.
