A concept for a suspended walkway connecting two offices in the city of Gliwice by Polish designers Zalewski Architecture.
A narrow winding grassy path above and – to minimise the amount of light being obstructed from above – a mirrored surface when seen from the courtyard below.
Redditor LegateVarrus spotted this house in Japan fitted with a wraparound caged-in cat balcony.
Fast Track – a 52m (170 ft) long trampoline ‘jumpway’ in the wilderness created by Russian design firm Salto for the 2012 Archstoyanie Festival (a class of an architectural Burning Man in the woods) in Nikola-Lenivets:
Hardly in keeping with the boingy madness they’ve unleashed here, Salto sez:
“Fast track” is a integral part of park infrastructure, it is a road and an installation at the same time. 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. It gives the user a different experience of moving and percieving the environment.

Pedestrian freeflow sorted at an insanely busy roundabout in Shanghai, observed by photographer Viktor Lakics:
Landmark architecture in Shanghai’s Pudong, the financial district. The circular walkway gives open access for pedestrians to all surrounding streets. As seen from above, standing at one of the observation decks in the Oriental Pearl Tower.
Unveiled this week as part of Duisberg’s Capital Of Culture Week, this is ‘Crouching Tiger and Turtle’: an 11m high steel and zinc walkable ‘rollercoaster’.
The loops require gravity boots, obviously.
