While Samsung is predicting going high in the sky, an architectural firm is seeing potential in going underground. BNKR Arquitectura has come up with “The Earthscraper,” a concept project that is composed of several layers of cities below Mexico City. It’s based on the pyramids the Aztecs created and it’s clever because it works around building code limits on the number of stories a structure can have. Not sold on all this futuristic stuff? Get a laugh out of these cartoons for technology-phobes.
