Salvage Swings

Defy gravity (at least for a short time) on Salvage Swings.

Salvage Swings designed by Arkansas-based Somewhere Studio lead architects Jessica Colangelo and Charles Sharpless and fabricated in the Fay Jones School of Architecture Fab Lab, won the 2019 City of Dreams annual international architectural design competition. 

Salvage Swings consists of 12 modules constructed from cross-laminated timber (CLT) shipping pallets salvaged during the construction of the Adohi Residence Hall on the University of Arkansas Campus. Arranged into a triangular pavilion, each module contains an individual swing and frames a view of the landscape surrounding the Amazeum.

At night, LED lighting embedded into the modules accentuates the geometry found in the structure.
