Who doesn’t look fondly upon their childhood memories of swinging on playgrounds? Well, now you can relive that experience—with an upgrade. Nestled in the lawn next to the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center is a set of 20 oversized, glowing oval swings. Commissioned by the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority and designed by the husband and wife team Eric Howeler and Meejin Yoon of Howeler and Yoon Architecture, the installation was designed to be the first interactive space in Boston. By day, you can see the light and airy O-shaped swings and surrounding metal structure set upon the lawn, and by night the glowing swings hover about in the dark for a truly unique visual experience. Take a look here.
If you happen to swing on over, be prepared to wait in line; the installation has been pulling in masses in every age group from the community and beyond.
