Sometimes when design inspiration meets a skilled architect, amazing things happen.  Such is the case with the Sky Habitat project in Singapore.  This structure, 38 stories high, supports a 50-meter swimming pool which allows residents of the building to swim from one tower to the other while enjoying breathtaking views of the city.  The new generation of architecture attempts to bring natural, lush spaces in to previously sterile, concrete-laden urban areas, creating habitats of the future right now.

Here is an excerpt from the post:

When complete in 2015, Singapore’s Sky Habitat will grace the city’s skyline with a pair of twin towers with something unusual joining them. Thirty-eight stories up, the complex will feature a 50-meter swimming pool, or “sky bridge,” that will enable residents to swim from one tower to the other while enjoying panoramic views of the city.
The project is the brainchild of renowned architect Mosle Safdie and developer Wong Heang Fine, CEO of CapitalLand Residential Singapore, who explains the bridge is all about creating a luxurious residential setting for residents.
“Flat owners will also be able to traverse the two structures via sky bridges on the 14th and 26th floors,” Fine says. “With Sky Habitat, we are creating a habitat for the future; a condominium that is also a house. While structurally a high-rise apartment, Sky Habitat will give residents the feeling of living in a house.
“This is because of the natural ventilation, lush gardens, sky bridges and open walkways that surround them. At the same time, they will enjoy the luxurious facilities and the connectivity and convenience of living in one of the most popular residential estates in Singapore.”
