Talk 'The outdoor basketball courts of tomorrow'
Starting from the point that the outdoor basketball courts and widely the outdoor sport courts are a part of the urban (territorial) heritage, this workshop has the ambition to attempt to approach the following elements: the function of outdoor basketball court and widely an outdoor sport court regarding the urbanistic and environmental dynamic, its design, its social function and particularly its impact on the construction of an occupational community.
This workshop has the ambition to gather experts from different fields: designers, basketball players, (social and sport) activists, architects, urbanists, politicians and experts.
This workshop will be a good opportunity to present the popup basketball court decorated with an artistic work that we’ll set up during this summer 2020 on “la place Nouveau Marché aux Grains”, the square located in front of the window of Mad Brussels, and the bench “Bball in the sky” designed by Patrick Agostinho who is an interior designer who get his degree from St Luc.
