When the pool is an eco-friendly natural pool! Natural pools are a new trend in sustainable living, eschewing chemicals in favor of a self-cleaning, plant based ecosystem. Designers and proponents claim that maintenance costs are much lower and that the cost of installing the pool itself is not much higher than that of installing a standard swimming pool. HGTV has a gallery of this fascinating concept in action. Here are a few of our favorites…

We've been hearing a great deal about leaks from the White House these days, and now, we have a theory. It turns out that the White House Press Briefing Rooms is built directly over Franklin D. Roosevelt's old swimming pool. The pool, drained during Nixon's era, now serves as storage space for computer servers, but still perhaps they should give Aaron's Leak Detection a call?
This house takes the concept of an indoor swimming pool to a whole new level...literally. A glass encased pool makes up the full second floor of the home creating a surprisingly tranquil atmosphere as the light flickers through the water making the library ceiling it's own work of art. Though we'd suggest the owners keep Aaron's Leak Detection on speed dial. Just in case!
An LA art show was recently submerged in a swimming pool and visitors viewed the gallery by swimming across it wearing goggles. Because, why not? The show featured 18 unique pieces, but our favorite was the pile of dishes because we're definitely going to try this with the dinner plates tonight! Nothing better than art with practical application!
Acrophobia is the fear of heights and aquaphobia is the fear of water or swimming. After swimming in the pool at Hotel Hubertus in South Tyrol, Italy, you may need a new term for the fear of swimming at great height! This pool towers 40' above the ground, supported by what appear to be enormous logs, and featuring a convenient window at the bottom so that you can fully realize this new, yet-unnamed phobia.
Proving that anyone can have a swimming pool with just a bit of ingenuity and effort (and thirst!), a group of Dutch men built their very own swimming hole using zip ties and beer crates. The project required 138 crates or 3,312 bottles!

A private residence with two pools is decadent enough, but when those pools stack like bunk beds and the upper has a glass bottom, that is (literally) a whole new level of luxury! And when the double-decker pools come with an ocean view, well, it's no wonder this house comes without a price tag!

"...dream of lazy days under the sun while surrounded by all the traffic and business going on at Rockefeller Plaza." Dreaming is all you may do though, as this pool is vertical. And empty.
Rockefeller Center's new art installation is titled "Van Gogh's" ear in a reference to the shape of the pool. And of course, "The title Van Gogh’s Ear plays on the mythological versus the ordinary. We thought it was a perfect name for a swimming pool of this shape. It opens up the possibility for a different perception of the form itself. And like the myth of Van Gogh cutting off his ear in despair, the dislocated pool will hopefully make people wonder ‘why?’, and pursue their own reasoning behind this inexplicable scenario.”
Gotta love art!
