Talk about putting a bounce in your step.

Estonian firm Salto Architects has unrolled a 170-foot-long stretch of trampoline sidewalk for pedestrians in Russia.

The Fast Track trampoline was built in Nikola-Lenivets Park, about 120 miles southwest of Moscow, for this year’s Archstoyanie Festival, which fills the countryside with artwork.

Designers Maarja Kask, Karli Luik, and Ralf Lõoke created the Fast Track as part roadway, part installation. According to the studio’s website, the project “challenges the concept of infrastructure that only focuses on technical and functional aspects and tends to be ignorant to its surroundings… It gives the user a different experience of moving and perceiving the environment.”

We’ll say! We wonder if any hop-happy commuters would get nauseated from all the bouncing.
