Nantes-based firm Barré-Lambot and landscape gardener Guillaume Sevin invite one and all to strap on their cleats and play Feydball! A sport combining the name of the Nantes neighbour- hood of Feydeau, and the game of football.

Here, the pitch has kept all of the ground’s natural bumps, its downward slope and, above all, its crescent shape. Fans watch from the steps — which have been transformed into bleachers — and enjoy a game deformed by the field’s grotesque configuration. They can also cheer players on while facing a large, gleaming totem where what they see is inverted: the mirror is warped so that the field and goalposts remain normal, while the players and the ball are deformed.
