Israeli practice JerusaLAB Architecture has sent us a tiny but mighty project titled simply, swing: a seesaw penetrating the massive concrete border fence between Israel and Palestine.
"The project claims to portray the possibility for peaceful acts in the Israeli Palestinian environment where face to face relationships are absent," designers Elena Mann and Eldar Gantz explain.
"Placing a swing inside a concrete element of the separation wall is an act that requires a blind cooperation and trust. The work suggest a positive romantic view on a conflictual relationship manifested in concrete borderline disorder."
