On the island of Eleuthera, Bahamas turtle pond as an echo-tourism destination. The project's design exploits the pond's condition as a "blue hole", meaning it is connected to the ocean underground. Mutated tides in the pond with no waves created the opportunity for floating platforms on pontoons. Occupants will feel the height of the ceiling change during the day as well as the lighting conditions changing with the water level.
