Fast Track by Salto Architects

View all 13 Photos

Why not try the road less traveled and have fun with it? Salto Architects has completed for Russia’s Festival Archstoyanie a 51-meter installation that deceptively appears to be an ordinary paved road, but is packed with a great deal more excitement. Fast Track doubles as a trampoline, the black material stretched between two rails that frame the long path. Visitors are encouraged to interact with the installation, tumbling, bouncing, and jumping along the surface that traverses across the wooded park grounds. The installation is intended to highlight how even technical and functional infrastructure can raise new experiences and awareness of the surrounding environment.
