London Could Be Putting A Pool In Its River Thames

Pip pip SPLASH!

British architects, engineers and designers have big plans for The Thames Baths, London's futuristic floating pool. Renderings of the massive platform show fresh water, lush reeds and space for sunbathing, all right in the River Thames.

The $15 million project, if completed, would result in a floating pool with a glass wall to keep river water out and serious swimmers in.

...meanwhile, we're just thrilled to get a tan with our tea.

The Thames Baths would join a number of already-existing urban beaches around the world. Some cities, like New York, have similar visions for floating pools of their own.

While there are no definite plans to build the Thames Baths just yet, an official crowd-funding campaign will kick off next month, The Guardian reports.

We'll gladly toss a pound in the bucket.
