The conceptual 'Playscaper' is an urban architecture idea that solves the problem of limited linear space in a cityscape to provide inhabitants with a better way to access sports facilities. The 300-foot tower consists of eight tennis courts that are stacked on top of each other in order to maximize the amount of area that is open for athletes to utilize. This contributes to a total of 60,000-square-feet of court space, while the exterior of the tower is paired with electronic facades that will stream sports or other content for onlookers to view.
The conceptual 'Playscaper' has been developed for RCS Sport and identifies what can be done to make sports facilities a priority in otherwise cramped urban locations where space is quite limited.
