Swing Time a new park concept by Howeler + Yoon Architecture in the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center

Swing time, the park consists of temporary hammocks that light up in different ways depending on the movement. The installation was set up by Howeler + Yoon Architecture in the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center with the aim of creating a new idea of ​​the city park. The large circular hammocks are made from welded polypropylene, available in three sizes and different heights, to allow everyone to experience the hammocks. The LED lighting inside the hammock is controlled by a mechanism that controls the oscillations. At rest, the hammocks are lit in white, but as soon as you sit on it and move the lighting varies in color from white to blue to purple. The idea of the project is to make people interact with each other, through the oscillations of the hammocks.
