Basketball for the Whole Family

We’re loving this new playground installation from  architecture firm a/LTA. A new take on the traditional basketball hoop, the structure allows multiples games to be played at once, as well as people from all ages groups. There’s a basketball height for every size. The “Arbre à Basket,” or “Basket Tree,” is installed in a children’s playground in Nantes, France. The game encourages anyone to pick up a ball and shoot for a hoop.

Designed with sleek steel beams, the basket tree reaches to the sky. It blends into the scenery yet makes a bold statement for innovative playtime fun. It’s a new way of looking at the game, as one that can accomodate and challenge kids and adults all at the same time. There are endless ways of reinventing the game, and the best part is that no one is excluded.
