Wild Swimming Pool / Swimming Pool

Wild  Swimming Pool

This is a solution to quickly build a safe swimming pool in a nature environment, which can create more opportunities for children in impoverished areas to learn to swim. In impoverished areas, most schools are unable to build swimming pools, due to limited conditions. Therefore, we can utilize existing natural resources such as rivers, lakes, oceans, which all are natural swimming places. And this design can provide full protection for children to learn to swim under the premise of making use of nature resources.
