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.
