Trampoline Sidewalk In Russia Makes Commuting Fun

Trampoline Sidewalk In Russia Makes Commuting Fun

'Fast Track' was built by Salto Architects for the Archstoyanie Festival and was used by attendees to get from one place to another.

Unlike the trampoline bridge that we featured a few months back that was just a concept, this trampoline sidewalk is very real. ‘Fast Track’ was built by Estonian firm Salto Architects for the Archstoyanie Festival in Russia. Inhabitat reports that it was used for play and to give attendees a different way to travel between locations.

The trampoline path could be used to make commuting more fun, offering people the chance to leap and bounce to work instead of walking. The architects describe it as being a road and an installation at the same time. They write:

It challenges the concept of infrastructure that only focuses on technical and functional aspects and tends to be ignorant to its surroundings. “Fast track” is an attempt to create intelligent infrastructure that is emotional and corresponds to the local context.
