'Sky Pool'


The world's first "sky pool" will bridge two high-rises in London 10 stories up. It will be completely see-through and utterly stomach-churning.Our main question is: Who will have the nerve to swim in it?At Embassy Gardens, a 2,000-unit luxury complex next to the new U.S. Embassy in London's Nine Elms district, residents will be able to swim from one building to another in a clear swimming pool bridging the main entrance, 10 stories in the air. The water will be about 4 feet deep; the pool itself will be 90 feet long by 19 feet wide by almost 10 feet deep, built of 8-inch-thick sheets of glass.
