3D-styled basketball court in Munich.

There is a basketball court in Munich, Germany that is going to blow your mind.  It is the craziest basketball court in the world. (Pics)

 

We’re not sure, outside of displaying one’s artistic integrity, why someone would choose to make a 3D-styled basketball court featuring lumps and lamps and all sorts of weirdness, but we do appreciate the results. Because it gives us an excuse to wonder what it would be like to play basketball on a court like this:

Whoa, man. Here’s a description of the court, from inges idée:

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.

It’s best if you read the preceding paragraph with the appropriate accent.
