The pool in the sky

In Vancouver British Columbia, We were staying near the pictured building.

The images don’t do it full justice; it is a swimming pool on the 18th storey, the bottom of the pool is glass and allows the swimmers to view the drop below, and passers-by to see swimmers 100s of feet above their heads.

Amazed by the realisation of what I was seeing, I had to think:

Is this the pinnacle of human progress?
