A floating public swimming pool & recreation area 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 recreations area and gathering space for people to enjoy the pool and views of the lake. 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 to create a busy and iconic public space.
This concept project was intended to create conversation about how to activate one of the best designed yet under utilised capital city public spaces in the world. Inspiration was taken from the proposed Plus Pool is New York and the existing Badeschiff in Berlin.
