No One Wins by Llobet & Pons, a Berlin- and Barcelona-based studio founded by Jasmina Llobet and Luis Fernández Pons, is a tweaked basketball board. Shaped like some kind of alien continent, it boasts enough room for a bunch of baskets, which is exactly what the team installed on it. Although the name suggests a negative tone, perhaps something like the rigged hoops found at a carnival, it does give people a chance to play, even it its futile.

A permanent installation in Teshima, Japan, No One Wins by Llobet & Pons is essentially an interactive art piece that not many will tire of. Unless, of course, they succumb to a defeatist attitude. Perhaps the installation will inspire a new set of rules for the sport.
