‘Above Below’ A Subterranean City that will heal the earth.
As we all know, we are in the process of depleting our natural resources, especially through open-pit mining exploits which leaves huge gaping holes in the ground, causing scars in the earth. Matthew Fromboluti of Washington University in St. Louis has a plan to heal those scars with an underground skyscraper that fills the hole and creates a self-sustaining community in its place.
His architectural proposal, Above Below, is to infill the 900-foot deep and nearly 300-acre wide crater left by the former Lavender Pit Mine outside of Bisbee, Arizona.

Product Design at it’s creepiest and definitely not for the faint of heart.
We are posting this “curious” item for the sheer audacity that someone made it. Behold the cockroach plate. Ew. While it is kind of gross and creepy, we are sure someone, somewhere, owns it. Wouldn’t you love to be a fly on the wall when this plate gets set down at a dinner party?
