Sky Pool – designing a world first
Tuesday 7th June, 2016 | 18.30-20.30
Architect Hal Currey and engineer Brian Eckersley explain the genesis and design of Sky Pool, the first swimming pool in the world to be supported by two adjacent buildings at a height of 10 storeys.
The talk was held at the Embassy Gardens marketing suite close to where the pool will be built and was part of the London Festival of Architecture, 2016.
Brian Eckersley ( pictured) is a structural engineer. He set up Eckersley O’ Callaghan 12 years ago with James O’Callaghan. The practice has engineered some of the most world’s most ambitious glass structures and is the engineer for Ballymore’s Sky Pool.
Hal Currey set up HAL in 2015 from Arup Associates, where he was a director. The practice continues to collaborate with Arup and Arup Associates on a number of projects including the latest phase of Embassy Gardens, which includes more than 850 new homes as part of the extensive redevelopment of Nine Elms, Battersea, on London’s South Bank
