__SPACER__ Perhaps the most famous of all pools, architecturally was designed not for humans, but for penguins.<p /><p />Lubetkin was one of a cluster of modernist architects working in Britain, between the wars. he produced the penguin pool for London Zoo in 1934. It consists of two self supporting interlocked spiral ramps, which descent into an oval modernist pool.
__SPACER__ More of a pond than a pool, this photo shows it side on. As a piece of architectural narrative, the Bali Four Seasons pool entry is exceptional. A wooden bridge takes you over a chasm to an infinity pool with the jungle wrapping around the background, the pool floating 50 feet above it.<p /><p />The entrance to the hotel is through a slit in the pool to the lobby underneath and is worth of a James Bond movie set.
__SPACER__ You can order prints of this great picture of 4 boys from the Madison Square Boys Club, form the National Archives. They are in a rowing boat on the roof of a flooded building in what looks like Queens, but could possibly be the North End of Brooklyn.<p /><p />Anyway this flooded rooftop counts as a cool pool, in our opinion.
