BNKR Arquitectura’s latest idea is creating waves: architect Esteban Suarez’s plan for an “Earthscraper”, a 65 story underground equivalent of a skyscraper beneath Mexico City’s main square, Zocalo. The underground tower would contain a central cavity to allow natural sunlight to enter its spaces for living, shops, and offices. But this is only the latest in a series of their innovative architectural concepts. Check out their website for drawings, plans and models of past, present and future projects. Detailed plans and images for the Filadelfia Corporate Suites, Sunset Chapel, Acapulco Bay Bridge, and Taiwan Tower, along with humorous architectural cartoons, provide a wide scope of the abilities and future possibilities for BNKR Arquitectura. Whether or not the “Earthscraper” is one of their feasible possibilities is still up for debate, but it sure is one groundbreaking concept!
