This Museum Doubles as a Three-Dimensional Explanation of Basketball

New, 1 comment

Architecture firm Gould Evans is designing a museum for the University of Kansas called the DeBruce Center for the Original Rules of Basketball. The intent of the museum is to "house the original typed rules of basketball authored by James Naismith in 1891." The original rules of basketball, however, are printed on two sheets of paper, so they don't really need an entire museum to house them. Hence, the rest of the 32,000 square-foot museum museum will be filled with the original rules of the basketball typed in giant letters on walls, and projected on other walls with light, and a big dining area.

It's a very literal museum.
