Salvage Swings utilizes scrap cross-laminated timber panels to create a fun and inviting summer pavilion. The pavilion is constructed of 12 simple modules that frame a swing and the swinger’s view. The modules are organized in a triangular form, allowing for activities beyond swinging. The module frames provide covered seating areas, the space within them becomes a central gathering space for community events, and the entire pavilion can become a playground for hide-and-seek games. Following the summer events, individual modules from the pavilion can be redistributed as individual swings to parks across the city!
