Details

In June 2010, two designers had the idea to build a floating swimming pool in New York City's East River, which would also filter 500,000 gallons of river water each day. It may sound farfetched but 1,200 supporters and more than $40,000 in Kickstarter pledges (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/694835844/pool-a-floating-pool-in-the-river-for-everyone) later, + POOL (http://www.pluspool.org/) is on its way to launching in 2015. Join Huge and the founders of + POOL as they discuss how design can transform cities and improve the environment, and how dreams can become reality with the power of social media and crowdfunding.
