A Floating, Filtering Pool is Bringing Play Back to Hudson River [PSFK 2015]
Partner at Playlab and PSFK Conference speaker discusses how +POOL is bringing leisure back to one of New York City’s greatest underutilized resources
PSFK is excited to bring Archie Lee Coates IV, a partner at multidisciplinary design office PlayLab, to our stage to speak at our flagship conference April 16-18.
As part of PlayLab, Archie is heading up a project called + POOL which intends to bring floating, filtered pools to New York City’s rivers for everyone to enjoy. We connected with Archie to chat about this ambitious initiative that centers around reconnecting with urban landscapes.
+ POOL’s goal to create swimmable spaces in New York City’s natural waters is an unprecedented undertaking. Can you tell us what inspired this project?
