Don’t run, don’t walk, BOUNCE!
This was the message those participating in the annual Archstoyanie festival took away from the 170-foot long trampoline set up in Nikola-Lenivets Park in the Kaluga Region of Russia. Designed by Maarja Kask, Karli Luik, Ralf Lõoke of Salto Architects, the enormous trampoline named ‘Fast Track’ is essentially a spring-loaded walking path that was built as “an attempt to create intelligent infrastructure that is emotional and corresponds to the local context”. In other words, what could be more fun than bouncing your way through a local park or adding a spring to your step on your commute to work?!
Check out this video of people testing it out below:
As fun as this looks, it kind of feels like a lawsuit waiting to happen – anyone who went to a trampoline party as a kid knows what I’m talking about. That said, it would sure beat crowded public transit during rush hour!
