Designers Yitan Sun and Jianshi Wu have come up with an insane concept that imagines Central Park below ground and surrounded by glass walls. Dubbed “New York Horizon,” the project won first place in the eVolo Skyscraper Competition.
The 1,000-foot-tall, 100-foot-deep structure would seemingly allow New Yorkers to have more space in the city, as the proposal includes digging deep into the earth and in turn filling the sunken landscape with hills, valleys and lakes. The reflective glass walls then provide the park with an illusion of infinity, giving the city a new horizon, thus being named “New York Horizon.”
Of course, such a project is highly unlikely, as it would be incredibly expensive, and it isn’t exactly the most practical of design proposals.
