Swing Time: Interactiv Playscape in Boston

Swing Time is an interactive playscape formed of 20 illuminated ring-shaped swings. Howeler + Yoon Architecture proposes to the residents of Boston this new type of park where they can perform physical activities, in groups or individually. Swings are made from polypropylene and are illuminated with LEDs. The luminous intensity of the LEDs is controlled by a micro-controller and it signals the activity level of the swing. Practically, an internal accelerometer measures the acceleration forces of the swing. When they swings are not used, the LEDs emit a white and soft light, and when they are used, it turns to violet that increases in intensity depending on the acceleration. In this way, a colorful lighting effect is created. Via Howeler +Yoon Architecture

Gruyere House, Catalunya / Lagula Arquitectes

The Gruyere house is settled in a narrow plot, where golf and forest views are facing against the proper sun orientation. Also the neighbour proximity could compromise privacy and the feeling of being in the nature. Probably, the beauty of complex plots is they provide specific conditions to produce architecture.
