The first architect-designed house I spent time in (by Harvard GSD professor Paul Mitarachi) was outfitted with an indoor swing. While the grownups discussed politics and drank wine, the children swung on the swing. These photos remind me that for those lucky enough to live in large spaces with high ceilings, an indoor swing is a welcome diversion.
