Futuristic: The building, intended for Mumbai, was designed by Hong Kong-based architect James Law and Indian real estate company Wadhwa Group

Architects have made a splash with a bold design for new towers in Mumbai featuring swimming pools enclosed in glass instead of balconies.

Known as Aquaria Grande, the 37-storey skyscrapers were the result of a collaboration between Hong Kong-based architect James Law and Indian real estate company Wadhwa Group.

The complex would have 200 apartments, three levels of car parking, a gym and sauna.

But not everybody feels inspired by the ambitious vision, with technology blog Gizmodo describing it as an ‘architectural nightmare’.

Writer Jesus Diaz claims on the site that the design is a ‘deadly accident waiting to happen’.

He adds: ‘No matter what you want to call this, I would call it crazy.’

Another blogger for the mymodernmet site, however, appeared to find the idea of swimming pool balconies more appealing.

Contributor Pinar said the design represented an ‘unbelievable skyscraping residential complex’.

She said the pools were among its ‘most outstanding and eye-popping features.’
