A glass floor covers the massive 240m x 240m hole in the city’s main square to filter in natural light from the world above. The earth-scraper is flooded with natural lighte and will have many green areas, to act as a “run-to” area from every day noises. This has to be one of the most creative and beautiful architectural projects one could come across.
