In 2004 Leandro Erlich created a fake swimming pool for his complex. It may seem strange that fully clothed people are breathing under water. It is in fact not real, he built the pool so that there is a piece of glass near the top holding in the water at the very top. At first you might think its real and perhaps jump in, don't do that or glass may shatter. Leandro Erlich is known for his art that looks like they defy the laws of physics. He installed the pool with all of the regular features such as a ladder and a deck. He is This is not only modern art but a pretty funny prank.
The idea is unique and cool, but I would rather have an actual swimming pool! For the price of this fake pool he probably could have bought a nicer actual pool and a hot tub or sauna. The only plus side would be if he actually charged people to tour it. Unique none the less.
