Dubai aims to create world's largest artificial reef

The project, which is currently only in the research and development stage, will consist of a series of interconnected islands that will host humans in luxury eco-lodges, surrounded by millions of mangrove trees.

'The 'floating living lab', dubbed Dubai Reefs also aims to create an artificial reef ecosystem below the islands, spanning approximately 200 square kilometres, that will provide a home for one billion corals, as well as turtles, fish and other marine life along the Dubai coastline.

Underwater Attraction Park

It is clear that the team behind Deep Dive Dubai (DDD) instantly dismissed the standard sterile swimming pool setup. Instead, a surreal, intriguing sunken cityscape has been created, that engages divers sense of play, fun and fantasy. State-of-the-art lighting and sound systems have been fitted inside the pool to create different atmospheres, and the pool itself has been dressed and staged.
