+ Pool is the collaborative initiative of design studios Family and PlayLab to build a floating pool for everyone in the rivers of New York City.
As both a public amenity and an ecological prototype, + Pool is a small but exciting precedent for environmental urbanism in the 21st Century. The project was launched with the ambition to improve the use of the city’s natural resources by providing a clean and safe way for the public to swim in New York’s waters. The project is not only a new typology for innovative, ecological architecture, but a prototype in the conception and implementation of a large-scale project from the public of New York, for the public of New York. The + Pool team is committed to building a project driven by civic, environmental and social good.

+Pool is part of the Storefront Starter initiative.
