Jayme Collins has alerted us to his concept page for a floating pool and beach in Lake Burley Griffin at Regatta Point:
Concept for a floating public swimming pool & beach at Regatta Point, Canberra. The pool is connected by a series of large terraces with outdoor seating, bar and live music area. The adjacent grass area becomes a beach and gathering space for people to enjoy the pool and views of the lake. The pool walls are made of a filter membrane that filters the lake water into water suitable for swimming. The aim of the project is to provide Canberrans with an outdoor swimming area that takes advantage of lake Burley Griffin and activates the lake edge as a busy and iconic public space.
