First comes shipping container architecture, and now “dumpster pools.” Taking over the streets of Manhattan (40th and 41st, to be exact) for the first three Sundays of August, these pools are making New York much more splashtastic.

Designed by Brooklyn-based Macro-Sea, these Dumpster Pools may seem slightly dubious, but they will be completely germ-free, and air-filtered. If there was ever an excuse to visit New York this summer, this surely is it.
