On the east harbor section of the River Spree in Berlin, a barge has been reconstructed into a floating swimming pool. This unique pool offers bathers a safe swimming area since the river is too polluted for safe swimming. The Badeschiff is open to the public and the swim season lasts from May to September.

Located on a narrow waterfront property on the south shore of English Bay, the Shaw House boasts a pool unlike any other that runs along the top west side of the house. The entrance is directly under the pool, midway along the side of the house, and the pool reflects daylight in a beautiful way throughout central spaces.
