    Default Feminist architecture

    OMG. Feminists have been nagging non-stop about skyscrapers looking like erect penis-tools of patriarchal sky penetration. Finally, we might get something I'd ram my plane into.


    Capitalism is the belief that the rich don't work hard when they don't earn enough, and that the poor don't work hard when they earn too much.

    Awesome, Mexico City seems to be a magnet for new building innovations. Can't help but wonder if that massive glass roof will cause the inside to heat up like a furnace, not sure I'd want to be in there if the AC fails and the Mexican sun proceeds to cook everything alive.

    I think Mexico City is built on top of an aquifer covered by alluvial fill and clay, in an earthquake zone. When the earth starts shaking, the ground turns liquid. What could possibly go wrong with living in a 300 meter-deep hole with a glass ceiling during such an event?
    Even if the the inhabitants elude the earthquake, they better hope the pumps keep running 24-7.

    Once again, what was the name of the architectural firm that proposed this?

    it does seem like a really "hip" architecture idea haha

    everything from "we could use the above ground for parades!" to "let's incorporate mexico's cultural history into 'pyramid'...but in reverse!"

    that being said i would totally go
