9 Coolest Hidden Pools
Social Pool is the work of artist Alfredo Barsuglia, who created the minimalist sculpture with a nod to other monumental works of desert-bound land art, like Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty on the Great Salt Lake. The eleven-by-five-feet wide pool is hardly a destination in itself—it's closer to the size of a hot tub—but like most art which requires a pilgrimage, it's more about the journey.
GPS coordinates can be obtained, along with the key, by visiting the MAK Center for Art and Architecture in West Hollywood. You can't call to see if the key is there, and you can't reserve it ahead of time. Of the destination, the artist will only say that it requires "several hours of driving from Los Angeles, plus a willingness to walk a long distance to reach the pool from the nearest road."
Following the success of its movable and submersible floors for the swimming pool, Agor has now come up with this very creative folding floor.
The modern-looking folding wooden deck, works as a normal pool cover to start with. It covers the pool completely, making the water underneath completely inaccessible. Then with only a touch of a button, the deck slowly folds from the middle to reveal the clear pool for use.
Agor custom builds the pool floors so the price for the folding deck varies according to size of the pool.
Interestingly, the folding floor uses water-based hydraulic mechanism to fold in and out, and when working as a deck, it is capable of withstanding hundreds of kilograms per square meter.
