Design
Where form meets function

As part of Italian city Alessandria’s redevelopment of its Carlo Carrà Park, Silician artist Gue has transformed its local basketball court into a geometric portrait of artistry.

“The idea was born from the possibility of being able to cross the field’s space,” says Gue, “and to stay inside the composition and change the perception of shapes through the game’s movement.”

According to Gue, the court was painted with a color palette reflecting the character of the court. Through contrasting colors such as warm tones of orange and yellow and cool tones like navy and ice blue, specific areas of the court are cleverly divided. As a result, the court operates not only as a functional basketball field, but as an artistic experience enhancing the playing experience.
