Inhabitat recently posted an article exemplifying innovative underground houses around the globe.  As a green contractor Eco Brooklyn is continually using cutting-edge ideas to improve upon Passive House designs. Structures built underground are protected from large temperature swings and extreme weather. Much of Malcolm Wells’ design incorporated concrete and Eco Brooklyn suggests using rammed earth or tires to add structural support to underground buildings. Subterranean living should be the future for humanity, as well as arcologies to protect our green land. Amateur archaeologists have uncovered a massive network of tunnels under the Roman Emperor Hadrian's Villa in Tivoli, Italy. The underground passageways likely allowed thousands of slaves and merchants to keep the estate running without creating any distraction at the street level. Though similar tunnels have been discovered at the complex before, the new discovery is exciting because the passageways were not mentioned in any ancient plans of the grounds, Marina De Franceschini, an archaeologist heading the excavation who works with the University of Trento, wrote in an email. Researchers have long known that a massive underground network of roads lay underneath the ruins of Hadrian's villa in Tivoli, Italy.
The villa was a retreat for the emperor Hadrian, a patron of art and architecture who reigned from A.D. But while Hadrian discussed affairs of state and held grand dinner parties in his opulent house, underneath him, a network of nearly invisible people kept the estate running.
The underground passageways allowed thousands of merchants, slaves and carts laden with goods to enter the villa without causing any hustle and bustle.


Slaves chiseled the passageways out of the soft tufa rock, and the same rock was then was used to construct the villa.
Using ancient architectural plans, researchers had uncovered passageways underneath southwestern part of the ruins, but they suspected there must be more. So a few years ago, Franceschini asked for help excavating the eastern portion from a group called Sotterranei di Roma, or Underground Rome.
The specific purpose of the system of passageways remains a mystery, but it lies on the outskirts of Hadrian's Villa, Weustig said. FOR THE FIRST TIME, A WHISTLE-BLOWER FROM WITHIN THE DIA COMPLEX CONFIRMS THE EXISTENCE OF A MASSIVE DEEP UNDERGROUND MILITARY FACILITY LOCATED BENEATH THE AIRPORT. The Denver International Airport (DIA) is nestled on a vast 53 square mile complex and is owned and operated by the City of Denver.A  In fact, ita€™s the largest airport in the United States, in terms of land mass garnered, and the second largest airport in the world to Saudi Arabiaa€™s King Fahd International Airport as I pointed out in my appearance on the Travel Channel series America Declassified. The concept is innovative, a first for an airport in America, and is likely to become the envy of other airports around the world.
In 2010, DIA and the City and County of Denver took a major step in DIAa€™s evolution to fulfill its gateway role by inviting firms from around the world to submit proposals to assist DIA in planning, assessing and creating an Airport City at DIA as the core of and competitive accelerator for the emerging DenverA aerotropolis. Hell every one knows about this and the urinals that are several feet off the ground where a regular man would have to use a step stool to take a leak .
Underground housing can provide New York State with low energy housing at reasonable prices without sacrificing the aesthetic appeal of living above ground.
Gennaro has also developed a design to alleviate the stress of the barrier walls by engineering a bowl-shaped structure with a one-to-one slope.


But over the centuries, soil had completely filled in the underground tunnels and their full extent was a mystery.
These speleologists and amateur archaeologists specialize in rappelling into underground tunnels and excavating them, said Inge Weustig, a classicist who works with the group.
She has a master's degree in bioengineering from the University of Washington and a graduate certificate in science writing from the University of California Santa Cruz.
However, interestingly, the newA aerotropolisA will incorporate an expansive business district with new lodging as well as an agricultural and technical district within the confines of the airport property to attract more revenue to Denvera€™s growing economy. In fact, between the planedA aerotropolisA and Coloradoa€™s booming marijuana industry, DIA just might be the next biggest thing since sliced bread. These buildings utilize the earth’s natural insulation and thus require less energy to heat and cool. They exist within nature instead of disrupting the environment. Under-grounding takes up less space and is less environmentally invasive. Unlike standard housing, driveway and backyard space are unnecessary as those amenities are provided directly above the structure.
