Earth scraper

“If at first, the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it.” – Albert Einstein

Afraid of heights? A Mexican architect has designed an "earth scraper", a 65 floor inverted skyscraper. Instead of building towards the sky, they plan on building underground. Think of a subway building. They even plan on converting water from a nearby underground lake into energy for the structure. Sometimes the simplest ideas are the most astonishing. I'll take an office on the -65th floor as the blog's new official headquarters. There's a metaphor in there somewhere...
