UK’ London Cross Build Their First Natural Swimming Pool

UK Natural swimming pool

The UK is getting its first natural swimming pool, or “man-made bathing pond” as they like to call it.  Located at a redevelopment site in London, and called “Of Soil and Water”.

The project is a mixture of a partnership between Slovenian artist Marjetica Potrč and by the Ooze Architects of Rotterdam studio.

No chemicals or biocides will be used to clean the pool  Instead the pool will be filtered with wetland filtration in a closed-loop system.

It looks like a beautiful project as it has grasses and wildflowers that change with the seasons.

They really wanted to promote the awareness of how important our water and soil are.  Which we often times take for granted.  

The pool will help people experience our responsibility and relationship with nature.
