15 July: See The Unseen – The Sky Pool with HAL Architects
Thursday 15 July 2021
17:00 – 18:00
In this event series, we go behind-the-scenes on some of the most challenging and trailblazing projects our members have worked on. The project teams will reveal the real story behind the design and construction process; what worked well and key lessons learned from the experience.
We’ll be hearing from HAL at our last See the Unseen event before the summer break. The Sky Pool has been five years in the making. Initially conceived as a swimmable aqueduct, the design process evolved to make the most of unparalleled views across London.
This short talk will cover the evolution of the idea, development of the concept and touch on the engineering and fabrication challenges.
