Sports and the arts don't always seem to be an obvious pairing, but Cyril Lancelin's pink-clad basketball court offers something for the athletes, and the spectators in the stands.

The gorgeously designed court reminds onlookers that sporting events can be admired, and the public spaces they take up can be re-claimed by artists to offer a revived look that appeals to anyone. This particular court consists of large concrete shapes that have been pained a vibrant pink. The circle and squares frame the court's fence, while the flooring features a similar mix of colors and shapes, while still adhering to the markings needed to play the game.

The court is expected to be completed in 2019. Photo Credits: designboom, townandconcrete
