Occupational School Center Munich, DE 2006

Commissioned by: City of Munich
Supervision: QUIVID – das Kunst am Bau Programm der Stadt München

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.
