The one cut into the side of the building looks cool! I don't remember where it is but I once saw a building were the pool was on the roof and part of the pool hung out over the side of the building. It had clear floor so you could see the street below and people on the street could see whoever was swimming. It wasn't a super tall building though. I'll try find a pic or something...



Edit: I think it might be this one. The Adelphi Hotel in Melbourne. Not a very tall building I always thought it was taller than that, but an interesting pool on top anyway. Be awesome if someone in say Dubai stuck a pool out over the edge of a 200m+ scraper. I'm other cities in the world have pools like this somewhere...

BTW:

The building is One George Street, just completed and mainly offices. The pool is used by the gym, which also owns the pools atop OUB Centre and Capital Tower nearby.

Swimmingpools on the top of Skyscrapers are the best pools of the world.

Sorry I don't have a picture, but the John Hancock Center features a swimming pool on the 44th level. I'll try to find one.
