This is incredible-Plans are underway for what would be the world's first rooftop 360-degree infinity pool to be built in London. Compass Pools, a UK-based pool manufacturer,unveiled its design for Infinity London, a 600,000-liter pool that would top a 55-story hotel. Contractors and partners have yet to be confirmed, but construction could begin as early as 2020.
At first glance, the pool's design is pretty awe-inspiring. Both the pool's walls and floor are completely transparent, meaning swimmers can get a full view of the hotel below and the London skyline. The pool is made out of cast acrylic -- which transmits light at a similar wavelength to water -- ensuring that the pool is completely clear, the pool's designers explain on their website. A built-in anemometer will monitor windspeeds and a digitally-controlled building management system will make sure the water is always at the right temperature.
