Exploring Urban regeneration through pattern and play

Re-imagining a basketball court through colour

A special project has seen artist Gui create a bold basketball court that reflects the dynamic nature of the game. In the Italian city of Alessandria, the Sicilian artist wanted to create a space that was playful and eye catching in order to engage the public in the new and improved space in part of the urban Carlo Carrà Park. Mixing abstract and geometric forms, the court markings act as a divider for the sunny colours.
"The idea was born from the possibility of being able to cross the field’s space, and to stay inside the composition and change the perception of shapes through the game’s movement"
