UMA, an international architecture firm, has released its plans for the Soderman infinity pool set to be built along the Baltic shoreline in Stockholm. The public pool is expected to be a significant draw for tourist from the rest of Scandinavia as well as from the world at large, as it will span over 1,000 meters from the norther part of Soderman to the highway in the east.
The kilometer-long infinity pool will be raised up on steel stilts built into the bedrock of the ground below. It promises to offer spectacular views of the Baltic inlet that juts into Stockholm. Indeed, the water in the pool itself will consist of treated Baltic seawater.
In the summer, the pool will be publicly accessible for dips, and in the winter it can be converted into a promenade for skating.
