This floating diving platform—designed by architecture firm Bulot+Collins—is intended to fulfill two purposes. For one, enthusiastic swimmers can utilize it as a play surface and a place to jump off from. On the other hand, those who climb it can marvel at the encompassing forest landscape. In addition, its design-forward aesthetics allows it to embellish the space as an installation. The structure is made from locally sourced wood and is clad in 1,400 handmade thermochromic tiles. It remains above water thanks to empty floatation barrels.
The floating diving platform is titled 'Iceberg' and is located in New Hampshire's Willy Lake. The design of the project is determined through a collaboration between Bulot+Collins and a group of children at Beam Camp in the summer of 2019.
