“Double Happiness,” is a billboard reinvented as swing set by architect Didier Faustino. The piece was part of the 2009 Shenzhen-Hong Kong Bi-City Biennial of Urbanism and Architecture.
Double Happiness responds to the society of materialism where individual desires seem to be prevailing over all. This nomad piece of urban furniture allows the reactivation of different public spaces and enables inhabitants to reappropriate fragments of their city.
