Fromboluti.jpgIf luxury was self-sustaining, hidden from the world?

 

Matthew Fromboluti from the Washington University in St. Louis has conceptualized a self-sustaining building that will can be constructed in a 900-foot deep and 300-acre wide crater left by the former Lavender Pit Mine. The proposed structure, christened “Above Below”, will include living and working areas.

 

The building is entirely self-sustaining: power source, water recycling system, solar chimney to control the artificial climate.

Enclosed with a dome roof, the building is completely contained underground, with only strategically-placed skylights for climate control providing access to the world above ground.

 

However, the society living inside is far from isolated – a light-rail system connects the building with nearby Bisbee.
