Underground buildings are the virtually unnoticed understudies of architecture, overpowered by skyscrapers and flamboyant surface structures.

Every day, tens of thousands of Americans use more than 700 public and commercial structures and 5,000 private homes that nestle within the earth. Major new subterranean structures are under construction or are on the drawing boards.

SubsurfaceBuildings.com explores underground buildings, examines their impact on architecture and the environment, and addresses such questions as:
  • Why would anyone want to bury a building?
  • Are underground buildings safe?
  • How do architects feel about designing buildings that are hidden within the earth?
  • What is the environmental impact of subterranean architecture?
A dozen SubsurfaceBuildings.com articles use photos, drawings, and descriptions to answer questions like these while showing that underground buildings are surprisingly common and appealing.
