The world’s most unusual basketball court is located in Munich, Germany. Designed by Inges Idee, this basketball court has been shaped in a 3D program on a computer to look like a roller coaster. To make the game even harder, street lamps were installed on the court.
A regulation-sized basketball court was erected on the grove-like forecourt of the school building of the occupational school. The court consists of a soft orange-red tartan covering and two normed baskets and seems to be forced over the grid of the lamps that have been set up. The playable court has been “morphed” as in a 3D program on a computer and looks like the grounds of a rollercoaster, with heights and depths and calm and dynamic zones. The resulting paradox, which moves between a normative set of rules and pleasurable, anarchic change, requires creative engagement for its use.
