Fast Track was one of a number of installations at Nikola-Lenivets Park, about 120 miles southwest of Moscow for the 2012 <a href="http://arch.stoyanie.ru/" target="_blank">Archstoyanie Festival. Salto Architects designed and built the bouncy installation, which sent visitors leaping across the field. The field had to be dug out in order to install the 170-meter long trampoline at ground level to allow for all the jumping.
Salto Architects created Fast Track to be both part of the park infrastructure as well as an installation. They wanted people to be aware of the infrastructure, which tends to be ignored as people move from one thing to another. “Fast track” is an attempt to create intelligent infrastructure that is emotional and corresponds to the local context. It gives the user a different experience of moving and percieving the environment.” But a word of warning – leave your cup of coffee at home so it doesn’t explode on you.
