The Death Star looking one was a Baku proposal and it was more ovoid than spherical

Actually, I wouldn't mind seeing pyramids in Dubai. It's in the desert, and Egypt is getting too dangerous to visit. Heck, even the one in Las Vegas - also in the desert - looks great.

There was a Death Star in the visualisations for the Dubai Waterfront project. Not really a proposal, just an artist's impression of what the Waterfront could look like. I think that's what he's referring to, though.
