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 Mésarchitectures, “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.
