The UK’s first natural public swimming pool will use plants, not chemicals, to stay clean -

Adventurous Londoners will soon be able to take a dip in the chemical-free King’s Cross swimming pool , a man-made freshwater pond filtered and kept clear through natural processes. Designed by Rotterdam Studio Ooze architects and artist Marjetica Potrč , the “Of Soil and Water: King’s Cross Pond Club” project was commissioned as part of the public art program RELAY and the 27-hectare King’s Cross redevelopment. The 40-meter-long bathing pond can accommodate over 100 bathers and explores the relationship between nature and the urban environment.
