Located in a park at Nikola-Lenivets, Russia, Fast Track is a 51 meter long trampoline / road created by Estonian studio Salto aka architects Maarja Kask, Karli Luik and Ralf Lõoke.

The installation, commissioned by the Archstoyanie festival, “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 percieving the environment.”
