London 2014

Our proposal for a transparent swimming pool suspended over the jetty being part of the real estate development of the Battersea Power Station. A summer environment will be created on the jetty and on the riverbank, providing different usages thoughout the day (swimming, relaxing, even urban gardening) and night (performances, screenings, private and public events). The venue will be connected to the other public areas via itineraries and pathways, thus creating new public spaces on and along the Thames. A fully retractable roof working like an accordion will protect the venue according to weather conditions.
