I see MHT pool is totally in the shade...someone hasn't thought this through I'm thinking. Pool but no sun isn't a good mix. Kp

The sun moves throughout the day, it doesn't stay in the same place all day

That picture would have been taken in the morning around 9-10am. By about 2pm the sun will be on Marina Heights pool and The Torch pool will be in the shade.

The earth moves around the sun! Not the other way round! But understand your point!

You need to pay better attention to my posts, it appears that you do not UNDERSTAND my point

I am specifically referring to the sun's movement in the sky through the day. As the Earth takes 1 year to move around the Sun, it is clear that that orbit DOES NOT CAUSE the sun's transit between 10am and 2pm

For those who want sun at the Marina Heights pool deck, there is always a sunny spot throughout the day, as the deck runs around the entire building. As of the pool: true, it is in the shade some parts of the day and this will increase with Marina Gates project; but in Dubai most of the year a pool in the shade is a blessing. Others put sun sails over their pools to keep the sun out.
