Jeffrey Donenfeld Infographic Leave a Comment

This one comes from architecture and design site eVolo, and is by far one of the most outlandish subterranean building ideas I’ve ever seen. I’m not sure which I’d rather live in, this upside down underground building, or one of those decommissioned nuclear missile silos for sale on eBay. Anyway, very interesting infographic…

“The Earthscraper preserves the iconic presence of the Zocalo and the existing hierarchy of the buildings that surround it. It is an inverted pyramid with a central void that allows all habitable spaces to enjoy natural light and ventilation. The first ten stories are dedicated to a pre-Columbian museum. The next ten stories are retail areas and housing while the deeper 35 stories are offices.”
