Dumpster Diving

Brooklyn-based  company, Macro-Sea is a development and design company “that is working to re-think and develop a series of exploratory interim use projects in order to transform and energize our urban landscape, everyday objects and surroundings”.  Their recent installation, Dumpster Pools will be installed and opened to the  public along Park Avenue for three weeks in August.  The pools are above ground, roughly 8 feet wide by 22 feet long and 3-5.5 feet deep. They will be surrounded by a five-foot-wide lounging deck and accompanied by several changing-room cabanas, portable showers and portable toilets.

This will be the second installation of the mobile pools.  In 2009, Macro-Sea came up with the concept and converted a Brooklyn Scrap yard into a country club oasis. View images from the 2009 installation:

  1. That’s a great idea! I love how it’s a literal interpretation of the term “dumpster diving”. I want to see one in person now too.
