From the department of “no, really, this is an actual thing human beings have discussed,” Dubai could (but won’t) be getting underwater tennis courts with hopes of one day hosting a tennis Grand Slam on them. This completely inane innovative idea was presented by Polish architect Krysztof Kotala, who has a laundry-list of degrees that show you he means business when he says he wants to put a giant piece of glass overtop seven different tennis courts that would sit at the bottom of the Persian Gulf, in between the Burj al Arab (the world’s only seven-star hotel) and the Palm Jumeirah islands (yes, the artificial islands you’re thinking of). Fish would swim above, which could provide for some interesting metaphors if, say, Serena Williams was playing Maria Sharapova and fans got sight of a shark devouring a minnow both on court and in the seas above. But, come on, this isn’t happening because it’s not practical, it would cost billions and because it’s not practical. First of all, the Grand Slam thing isn’t going to happen because, despite recent calls to move the Australian Open to China or one of the rich countries of the United Arab Emirates, that major isn’t going anywhere. And seven courts aren’t nearly enough to handle the amount of matches that take place during the first week of a Slam. And, of yeah, no one is going to build a tennis court underwater, no matter how awesome it sounds. I get that Dubai and Abu Dhabi are having a luxury arms race to see who can waste their oil money faster, but this proposal (which currently has zero investors) is ridiculous, even for them.

Now THAT would be AWESOME!

At least the shown pics look very impressive!

Wait, this is the plot? This tiny little piece of land next to the substation?



Edit: From the second render that also shows the location, we can assume this tower will be about as tall as Millenum Tower (285m)
