測試水質的+ Pool燈光漂浮裝置
Floating + Pool Light installation illuminates the East River to test and report on water quality



LED lights on a plus-shaped installation floating on Manhattan's East River change colour based on the water quality conditions.


+ Pool燈光裝置是一個公共設施,由當地公司PlayLab、Family New York、Floating Point,以及哥倫比亞大學Lamont-Doherty地球觀測臺共同研發。該裝置能夠跟蹤報告碼頭附近水域的水質變化。


+ Pool Light is a public installation executed by local studios PlayLab Inc, Family New York, Floating Point, and Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. It tracks and reports the physical conditions of the water off Pier 17 in real-time.
Data collected is displayed on an online dashboard designed by Reaktor that reports whether or not the current water conditions are safe for swimming.



+ Pool燈光裝置的設計者、PlayLab公司的合伙人Jeff Franklin說:“設計方案中,‘+’成為了積極的表征,這也代表了1972年美國清潔水法案頒布以來,人們對于水質的改善而付出的努力!


The drifting sculpture measures 50 by 50 feet (15 by 15 metres) and is constructed with a series of LED lights. Its cross-shape is influenced by the continued progress and efforts being made in New York City to improve water quality.
"The design recognises the "+" sign as a symbol of positivity, indicating the positive steps we have taken to improve water quality since the Clean Water Act of 1972," said Jeff Franklin, designer of + Pool Light and partner at PlayLab, Inc.
"Conceptually it is also a symbol of inclusivity in that the water that surrounds us belongs to no one single group, but to everyone."

該項目由Family New York 事務所的Dong-Ping Wong和Oana Stanescu、PlayLab事務所的Archie Lee Coates IV和 Jeffrey Franklin共同發起。幾年來,設計師們一直希望能夠在曼哈頓河里設計出帶有自我過濾功能的漂浮游泳池,這樣既具娛樂性,也具有教育意義。

同時,他們也成立了非盈利組織Friends of + Pool,主要接收安裝燈光裝置的委托,同時以無障礙且全方位沉浸的方式給公眾帶來教育意義。

Friends of + Pool的負責人Kara Meyer說道:“水質數據較為復雜,因此人們很難能夠收集到具有意義的數據。因此我們想構思某種策略,讓人們能夠通過數據來直觀地了解目前所發生的事!


The project was produced by Dong-Ping Wong and Oana Stanescu of Family New York, and Archie Lee Coates IV and Jeffrey Franklin of PlayLab, Inc. For several years, they have been working to design and install a floating, self-filtering swimming pool in a Manhattan river called + Pool to provide public, recreational space that is both fun and educational.
As part of the project, they established non-profit Friends of + Pool, which commissioned the light installation, to educate the public about water conditions in a way that is accessible and immersive.
"Water quality data is incredibly complex, so access to data means very little to everyday people," said Kara Meyer, managing director of Friends of + Pool. "We wanted to figure out a way to empower people with the data and engage them visually with what is happening in the water in front of them."
A series of sensors, part of a Fluidion Alert system, attach to the installation to take samples of the water, test and analyse them for levels of salinity, toxins and harmful pathogens.

Reaktor's dashboard powers the floating sculpture's lights. When levels of Enterococci, a bacteria Fluidion tests for, are safe for swimming + Pool Light glows teal, but if high levels of harmful pathogens are detected it turns pink, alerting the public that it isn't safe to enter the water.
The brightness, frequency and sharpness of the lights indicate the levels of oxygen, turbidity and pH present in the river.

漂浮 + Pool燈光裝置將于2020年1月4日于紐約海港區展出。

The sculpture also changes its direction based off the flow of the current, moving clockwise when flowing north and counterclockwise when southbound.
+ Pool Light is on display in New York's Seaport District until 4 January 2020.

+ Pool燈光漂浮裝置在其他建筑師的設計方案中同樣具有發展的潛力,芬蘭OOPEAA工作室設計了漂浮于水體之中的游泳池,而BIG建筑事務所則設計了一系列漂浮于海面上的村莊。

+ Pool Light follows other architects investigating the potential of floating architecture. Finnish studio OOPEAA also unveiled plans to create swimming pools that float in bodies of water and BIG proposed a series of floating villages that can withstand rising sea levels.
