Munich’s Incredible 3D Basketball Court

It’d be tough to play on, but it looks cool as hell.

We have no idea how to describe that thing, so we’ll let Inges Idee do the honors:

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 only court where it’s easier to dunk from the free-throw line.

    I lived in Munich for a year and a half and even if that court were flat, it would be covered with snow for 1/3 the year anyway. Bah!

    Munich was a good movie.

    so it’s not for basketball, more for lying down on?

    Dunks all day. Cosign BlackPhantom, you could mix someone so bad on that court.

    So, Binaural, who cares if you lived there for 1.5 years? Just say it would be covered with snow for 1/3 of the year.

    @mabaezd hating cause you ain’t got no stamps on ya passport?? u mad?! lol jk, anyways I’m not certain what exactly I expected when I read “3D basketball court”….but this certaintly isn’t it. And yall talking about how cool this would be to play on…yeah it might be after about 60 seconds when at that point you realize you really aren’t even playing basketball anymore
