Pie in the sky

In Dubai they want to build a huge platform 300 metres in the sky, on spindly legs that would look like rain. As much as the Dubiasians know about rain, anyway.

I suppose one good thing about it would be 300 metres downstairs, in the platform's shade. The upstairs part is 20,000 square metres, so I imagine the shade would be nice and big.

Here's a pic of a giant parasol:
