- A new video making rounds has shown the moment fun-lovers were swimming in a pool built between two skyscrapers
- The pool in the viral video is said to be the world's first transparent of its kind and was met with mixed reactions
- While many expressed fear at the sight of it, others found nothing intriguing about it as they downplayed its hype
Architects and engineers keep springing up surprises with building structures and features you wouldn't ordinarily think can be created many years ago.
BBC News UK recently shared on Twitter an incredible video of a transparent pool that was built between two skyscrapers.
In the clip that has blown up, fun-seekers were seen having a good time in the warm pool without any fear.
What people think of a transparent pool between skyscrapers
Social media users expressed apparent fear of the structure standing the test of time citing previous glass structures that had collapsed. Many others however frowned at the wastage of resources expended in its construction.
"It may look like an achievement in engineering, however, it is actually about inequality, greed and waste.
"Pools in the sky are gross."
"Dazzle Dazzle, but this is the developer @ballymore which pockets obscene profits whilst endangering the lives of leaseholders and residents through unsafe and unfit buildings with flammable cladding, faulty wiring, flammable wooden decking, endless leaks…"
"Don't look safe to me. Especially when you hear of builders cutting corners to save a few bucks. All it wants is one hairline crack like in Jurassic Park 2. Not a good idea. Enjoy your swim!"
House is lifted and moved
Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that a video had captured the moment a house was lifted and moved to another location.
In the video that was shared on Twitter by @jrstonelive, residents could be seen watching the moment the old house was moved from 807 Franklin St to 635 Fulton St, San Francisco.
Captioning the video, @jrstonelive wrote:
"Nothing to see here, just a historic San Francisco Victorian home coming down the street! Today it’s being moved 6 blocks for more than $400,000. It’s old location near Turk and Franklin will soon be home to more than 60 apartments."
