Resembling a tree, this sculptural piece was created by architecture firm, Agency/LTA allowing different age groups to participate at different heights. Located in a playground at the Maison des Hommes et des Techniques in Nantes, France, we are sure it will attract a crowd not regularly seen shooting hoops.
