Friends of + Pool and Ace Hotel announced the opening of their exhibition for the public, “Doing Something Big When No One Asks You To Do Something Big.”
The installation will look back on four years of research and development of the world’s first filtered floating pool, + POOL.
The installation will be open 24 hours, seven days a week at Ace Hotel Gallery in Midtown through March 1.
From it’s inception, + POOL has focused on making its process as fun and engaging as possible. “Doing Something Big When No One Asks You To Do Something Big,” will present floor-to-ceiling wall drawings by the designers of + POOL. The drawings will visualize the project’s process from an idea to a pool, while sharing some of + POOL’s most interesting discoveries and anecdotes to date.
+ POOL’s launch of the installation will provide the public and Kickstarter supporters the opportunity to see the project’s time-line development by interacting with visuals and it’s team.
+ POOL is an initiative to build the world’s first water-filtering, floating pool in New York.
Since + POOL’s designers and founders launched their first Kickstarter campaign in 2011, the + POOL project has become a new model for funding large-scale civic projects worldwide.
+ POOL’s Kickstarter campaign in July 2013 helped the team surpass their goal by raising $273,000 from 3,175 supporters from all around the world. The deck, walls and floor of + POOL will be made of 70,000 pool tiles. If each tile is claimed, it will fund the entire $15 million construction budget of + POOL, making it the largest public and private funded civic project to date.
