Billboard swing set

This billboard converted into a swing has been circulating around the blogosphere but I think its particular blend of imaginative urban design, architecture, and playfulness would appeal and resonate with our classy readers here. Conceptualized and created by Didier Faustino for Bureau des MĂ©sarchitectures, “Double Happiness” was presented at the 2008 Shenzhen & Hong Kong Bi-city Biennale of Urbanism and Architecture. Maybe this following wish is a byproduct of living in NYC, which is the closest thing that exists to Never Never Land, but I do wish city park planners (Calling Leslie Knope) would install swings that adults could use in more public spaces. A swing set on top of some of our skyscrapers would be f’awesome.
