Crazy Hilly Basketball Court

Brilliant! This court in Munich would be an amazing place to play basketball. Or better yet, to watch NBA professionals try to do so. Here's how it's designed:

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.

The court was designed by an art collective called Inges Idee. You can view three more photos at the link. Link -via Yahoo News | Photos: Markus Buck

I agree that it is certainly an interesting area. But that description is a bit pretentious. Afterall, it's just an artificial hill. And when they say "calm and dynamic zones" I hope they're not refering to the kinetic/potential energy difference between the top middle and bottom of something rolling down a hill, that demands disrespect.
