300ft Tall Skyscraper of Stacked Tennis Courts

This specific skyscraper was completed within the year 2020. The skyscraper is so unique and gives off a 3D affect that pleases the human eye. The building has over 60,000 square feet of playing space while the two long panels on each of the levels display actual matches that people can watch. This new modern structure gives us a view of the future as the skyscraper can be easily dismantled and moved to other areas.

  1. Wow, what an amazing concept. Not only is this interesting to look at from the outside, but playing inside the courts and having those views surrounding you must be so surreal. It looks like stairs connect each floor. I wonder if there is a better solution because, to get to the top, someone would have to walk up 8 flights of stairs. I also wonder how expensive it would be to play here or if the building would crowd with people interested in this unique building.

  2. When I first saw the picture, I thought this was a rendering, not an actual building! I really like this concept, it could be easily modified for many types or buildings, and I like the use of the roofs of each level being used as a large balcony. The article mentions that they are modular and could be moved relatively easily, I assume that is so they could be built offsite and transported? How often would you really want to move a building this large?

  3. The design idea seems simple enough – like using Lego blocks to create a high riser. But the architect took a bold approach to create this building. With the lighting effect, it makes this building even more charming.

  4. When I first saw this picture, I thought there was no railing to keep people away from the edge but now I can see it when I look closer. This building is really intricate and I can imagine it’s intensity if I were to see it in person.
