Taking a look at 6 modern swimming pool designs around the world

Architects move away from the rectangle

Some swimming pool designers and architects appear to be moving away from the traditional, grounded rectangular form, according to a report from City Lab.

One of the newer designs is the "floating pool," first advertised by the +POOL team in 2011. The idea is that the structure would function as a floating water-filtration system and a swimming pool all in one. The first proposal suggested a spot in New York City's river ways.
