A 900-foot deep and 300-acre wide crater left by the former Lavender Pit Mine will be home to a self-sustaining building and will flaunt several living and working areas. Dubbed as Above Below, the proposed structure is another feather in cap of eco-minded architect Matthew Fromboluti from the Washington University in St. Louis.

A dome roof, which includes some skylights to offer superior climate control, will enclose the underground facility. The concept construction – a sustainable, underground skyscraper in making – will depend on myriad power sources, water recycling system and mechanisms, which comprise of solar chimneys as well, to stay at ease within the artificial climate. Moreover, a light-rail system is supposed to connect the building with nearby Bisbee.
