“We really feel that play need to not be limited to youngsters, nor to playgrounds. We had the notion of a playscape in the city that engages men and women of all ages in lively perform,” Eric Höweler, co-founder of Höweler + Yoon Architecture, advised Dezeen.
The translucent plastic hoops contain LED lights that reply to exercise. A microcontroller and accelerometer in each and every swing chart amounts of movement and inclination to inform the colour changes.
“The basic principle of responsiveness tends to motivate people to interact with the piece and with each other,” Höweler stated.
“We’;ve had an overpowering response. The swings have been super crowded on opening night and we’;ve had requests for further installations from all around the nation and internationally,” the designer mentioned.
Höweler co-founded Höweler + Yoon Architecture alongside fellow architect Meejin Yoon. In 2012 the studio won the Audi Urban Future Award for their conceptual project BosWash, which imagined with a hybrid of personal and public transport.
