Meet the Innovative Architects Behind the Planned East River Plus Pool

You have probably heard of the + Pool, an ambitious crowd-funded project that started in 2010 to build a giant, plus shaped swimming pool in the middle of the East River. The pool is designed to provide areas for all types of aquatic activity, but also to help filter and clean the East River at the same time. In this video from Blouin Art Info, the pool's designers Dong-Ping Wong and Archie Lee Coates IV discuss their new exhibition at the Ace Hotel and the design behind the + Pool.
