It seems every summer day we look out into the Boston Harbor or NYC rivers, and one mentions how awesome it would be to just jump into the water.  +Pool is still pushing forward to make this a reality in NYC.  One of the largest civic kickstarters ever done and you can be a part of helping to make it a reality.  We have been following +POOL, and Archie Lee Coates, Jeffrey Franklin, Dong-Ping Wong, every since the original idea was reveled.  Float Lab is just another stepping stone in making +Pool a reality.  A smart and creative design funded by the people for the people.  It seems like a no brainier!  So make sure to check out the +Pool kickstarter after the jump!

” + POOL is designed to filter the very river that it floats in through the walls of the pool, making it possible for New Yorkers to swim in clean river water for the first time in 100 years.  The layered filtration system incrementally removes bacteria and contaminants to ensure nothing but clean, swimmable water that meets both city and state standards. No chemicals, no additives, just natural river water.

The pool will clean up to half a million gallons of river water every single day.  In doing so, + POOL will make a measurable contribution to the rivers of New York City.  The rivers are big, and this will be a great place to start cleaning them.

+ POOL is designed for all types of swimmers, bathers and hanger-outers, which is why it’s designed as four pools in one: a Kids’ pool, Sports pool, Lap pool and Lounge pool. Each can be used independently, combined to form an Olympic-length pool or opened completely into a 9,000 square foot pool for play. Its simple and iconic shape will mark the return to clean rivers in New York City.”
