Macro | Sea Dumpster Pools

Transforming a dumpster into a pool in a mere twelve days, the creative developers behind Macro | Sea are quickly changing sections of Brooklyn's urban landscape from an industrial wasteland to a pool party.

The pool project is a subsidiary of NY-based Macro | Sea's larger mission to transform defunct strip malls into pleasant community spaces where people can congregate. The concept was a success for residents of São Paulo several years ago and they have completed redevelopment projects in Paris, France, Salamanca, Spain, and Dublin, Ireland.

Proving that it's possible to creatively reuse objects like dumpsters, Macro | Sea's pools are a welcome addition to the hot summers in the city.

This can't work in reality, that's what I think.
