Appreciations towards photographer Ugo Galassi for providing the photos of the project.
This basketball court is part of “Rigenerazione Urbana”, a project for the redevelopment of Carlo Carrà park, in collaboration with the Municipality of Alessandria, Italy. The idea borns from the possibility of being able to cross the eld’s space, to stay inside the composition and change the perception of shapes through the game’s movement.
It was important to consider the schemes of the designated areas, necessary for the game, but at the same time it was necessary to feel free to interact with shapes and colors. The choice of colors was motivated by a direct reference to the world of sport, so I chose the color samples used in basketball courts, combining them and adding personal variants. The trend of curves generates a compositional rhythm, that marks and exalts the movement, to amplifying the action and leaving a visual echo of the matches played on the playground.
