Preview : The Pool at Aria
This is part two of our CityCenter Pool Party posts, this time scanning the pool deck at Aria. The previous episode, focused on the pool deck at Vdara, is here. Allow me to reiterate at the outset that I'm not real hot on pools in general, so I'm eager to hear what y'all think about some of this stuff.
Aria's pool deck is located on the roof of (presumably) the casino, tucked away 'out back' between the hotel tower and the I-15 freeway. The deck itself features four modified tear tear drop shaped pools in total. For a birds eye view, check out this huge resolution photo snapped from Panorama Towers by The Strip Podcast guys.
The pool detailed here appears to be the one in the south east corner of the currently non-foliated pool deck. The building to the left is the convention center, not a parking garage as I had erroneously suggested/hoped.
I'm curious why they opted for four smaller pools as opposed to a larger one... intimacy? a better distribution of the water weight on the structure? more surface are for toe dipping? more space for deck chairs?
It's also interesting to note that the renderings have no handrails anywhere. Also, the people photoshopped in are all wearing long pants - barely a bathing suit in sight.
The walk in entrance in the back, is very bat cave.
It's probably safe to assume that the red things behind the palm trees are cabanas... or they are gigantic Warholian sculpture set of red high heels.
I'm kinda surprised that the cabanas aren't in clear sight line of the pool.
As stated in the previous post, we've got a ton of other renderings to take a look at... next up will probably be interiors for The Crystals shopping district.
