One way to repurpose an oddly shaped urban lot? Turn it into the world’s most colorful basketball court. That’s the idea behind this creation from French fashion label Pigalle and art firm Ill-Studio, which was first unveiled in 2015 and recently repainted–with help from Nike. Now the rubberized court, walls and hoops in Paris’ ninth arrondissement all have a sunset color scheme that Pigalle and Ill-Studio call their “interpretation of the future aesthetics of basketball and sport in general.”

This appears in the July 24, 2017 issue of TIME.
