FIBA’s New Headquarters are INSANE!

Take a little look at FIBA’s new headquarters on the outskirts of Geneva in Switzerland, which were unveiled to the world in an Inauguration Ceremony on Tuesday.

Called the ‘House of Basketball’, they officially moved in to the 8,500 square metre plot on the shores of Lake Geneva (with views of the Alps, might I add), back in April.

The state-of-the-art facility comes with a complete floor for FIBA’s administrative staff, a conference centre and an exhibition area that includes the FIBA Hall of Fame, as well as a library with more than 6,000 basketball books. It also features underground parking and extensive storage.

The building is shaped like a hand, one of the key elements of FIBA’s visual identity and one of the main body parts used to play basketball. It also incorporates a steel structure that is reminiscent of the woven basketball net.

Not only that, the House of Basketball is built to respect the environment; it’s signed up to meet the highest standards of sustainability as outlined by the Swiss label Minergie!

Absolutely ridiculous. Check out the album of pictures on FIBA’s Facebook page, and view the video below showing glimpses during the Inauguration Ceremony:
