A solebox initiated visual project to create a selected archive of Berlin basketball courts. From the wire street cages to its solitary hoops and plush central courts, this is a curated documentation of the city’s known and unseen basketball culture. The archive is freely available and is made with the support of the Jordan brand to commemorate the launch of the Air Jordan 1 Low “BLN”.

Monumentenbrücke,
Schöneberg

My go to spot has always been the court on Monumentenstraße. We have a decent basketball community in Berlin with a lot of talented players so every time you step out on the court competition is intense and mostly rough. No one wants to lose. It’s either go harder or go home.

Weinmeisterstrasse,
Mitte

I’ve been playing basketball since I was 10 and the court I’m in the most is Weinmeisterstrasse. What makes my area so special is the fact that people from all around the world are coming to this area to live. Which reflects on the basketball scene, bringing all their different basketball styles.

Basketball has always been a huge part of my life and has shaped me into the person I am today. The basketball scene in Berlin is very unique, you get to meet a lot of amazing people that are creative, powerful and really special.

Grüne Meile,
Moabit

I have been here in Berlin all my life, my heart is practically anchored in Moabit. Here on the green mile court you can meet with most of the ball players in the district and connect with them very quickly – everyone is super chilled.

Lietzenseepark,
Charlottenburg

I started playing ball as a kid, which laid the foundation stones to my interest in street culture including fashion and hip hop music. Playing basketball gives a great opportunity to meet people from different areas with different styles. In my local courts of Charlottenburg, I like the mix of young and middle-aged basketballers, you don’t need to be a professional player to play against each other.
