Gould Evans has unveiled its newest project: the DeBruce Center for the Original Rules of Basketball, a 32,000 square-foot museum that will house the 1891 original typed rules of basketball by James Naismith.

The museum will serve as an addition to the University of Kansas’ Allen Fieldhouse, and seeks not only to provide an exhibition place for the historical document, but also to tell a three-dimensional history of the evolution of basketball through various points along a linear path.

“This path is woven into every pragmatic element, including a 200-seat student dining commons, an athletic training table for men’s and women’s basketball, a café, and a 60-seat restaurant, allowing the story of basketball to unfold at multiple scales and to multiple audiences," write the architects.
