We are completely enamored by this impressive 170 ft. long trampoline, recently installed into a forest in Nikola-Lenivets in Russia, created by Estonian design firm and landscape architects, Salto.

The Fast Track installation is part of Archstoyanie, an arts festival in Nikola-Lenivets, just outside Moscow. This rubbery road enables users to bounce their way to a destination. The team believes that by alternating the traditional notion of commuting, users can experience the local environment in a completely new way.

“[It is] an attempt to create an intelligent infrastructure that is emotional and corresponds to the local context, giving the user a different experience of moving and perceiving the environment,” explains the Salto team.

Earlier this year, we saw the proposed plans for an inflatable trampoline bridge, which would enable commuters to bounce their way across the Seine River in Paris.

This year’s Designer of the Year winner, Vito Accnoci, has also designed a mathematics inspired “Klein Bottle” playground that will be installed soon in Miami’s Design District.

In increasingly overcrowded cities, designers are beginning to see the urban landscape as a potential for escapist architecture, which we touched upon in our recent Urbanomics, Futurist report.

  • Aux municipales,cheap nfl jerseys Freddy Vasseu se présentait en tant que membre du Parti pirate sur une liste de centre droit à Port-Lès-Valence. Résultat des élections, cheap nfl jerseysil est élu au conseil municipal de la ville dès le premier tour. Le Parti pirate compte également 2 autres élus municipaux.

  • En France, le Parti pirate présentera des listes dans six des huit cheap nfl jerseyscirconscriptions, avec pas moins de 30 candidats en Île-de-France et pour les Français à l’étranger. En plus de ça, le mouvement sera présent dans une quinzaine d’autres pays européens.

  • Mais cet appui n’a rien de très étonnant quand on connaît cheap nfl jerseysla proximité entre le site internet et le Parti pirate. Début mai, l’ancien porte-parole de Pirate Bay, Peter Sunde, s’est lancé dans les Européennes. Son programme : défense de l’Internet libre, de la transparence gouvernementale, ou encore favoriser un plus grand respect des droits individuels. Sans surprise, ce candidat avait reçu le soutien du Parti pirate Finlandais.Il portera la bannière du parti pour les élections et sera candidat à la présidence de la Commission européenne avec Amelia Andersdotter.
