Mexico City limits building height to 8 stories, so architecture firm BNKR Arquitectura has proposed an inverted pyramid-shaped building to be build underground. An enormous glass ceiling would be at ground level, bringing light down through a central atrium to the floors below. The glass ceiling would also serve as a glass floor for the plaza above, allowing for public events to take place at ground level.
