Sadly, this wind tunnel is not a companion piece to Ski Dubai. But it should. And there should be at least one per billionaire Dubai prince. Michael Jackson, two.

Surely landscape architects must then be invited over, some pines or maples or some others installed, and with those hypersonic, hypervelocity fans turned on, they'll sculpt and prune away a grove of phantasmagorical aeolian bansais.

Their inner Axel Erlandson let loose.

  • I love "windy" trees. I live near the beach and you can always tell which way is East by the trees.

    I liked many of the things on your blog. Those plant-cell pictures are gorgeous.

    Thanks,
