‘fast track’ – a 170 foot long trampoline in russia by salto architects



developed for the archstoyanie festival in russia by estonian architecture studio salto, ‘fast track’, the 170 foot long trampoline demonstrates the integral elements of park planning. expressed as a road installation, the project challenges the concept of infrastructure that normally focuses on technical and functional aspects, tending to be ignorant to its surroundings. ‘fast track’ is an attempt to create intelligent interactive spaces that emotionally correspond to its local context, giving the user a different experience of their environment by movement.

    want the same to get to work!

  • Just a note, it’s headlined as 170 feet long… but then text says 170 meters, which would be 510+ feet, which seems more correct by the photos. I’ll try not to ask why there has to be a photo of a man in a ballerina’s skirt in these photos. Not that that ruins it, but it does.

  • now I know where I can wear my new tutu

    dbkii says:
  • Oh I so want to go and experience it for myself!

    Great post!

    Stacey says:
  • Brilliant, all parks should have one, and the tutu should be compulsory….fun for all

    graeme says:
  • fantastic, definitely should have these all over the place 😀 and as for the man in the tutu he looks great and very happy, I’m more curious about what he is carrying?
