The “earthscraper“, or inverted skyscraper/pyramid, that they are planning to build in central Mexico City is a foolish idea. Apart from penetrating the former ruins of Tenochtitlán, built on the former Lake Texcoco, this is an area known for its many earthquakes. The earthquake in 1985 killed more than 10,000 people. I also doubt that Mexico could finance such a giant project, particularly these days. Where will they get the money? From the drug cartels, the upcoming 2012 tourism, or China? Interesting architecture though even if it remains a fantasy reminiscent of the Mines of Moria. Now we’ll just have to wait and see when Semir Osmanagich finds an inverted pyramid in Bosnia that can rival this one.
