A Dutch company wants to build a massive underground city beneath Amsterdam, going six stories below the space-challenged city. Strukton, owned by the Dutch railway, wants to drain Amsterdam's canals one by one and then refill them with water after it builds its enormous troglodyte structure. The "web-like complex" would include parking, sports, movie theaters and warehouses... and people would hunt you down and kill you when you turn 35. More pics below.
I love the weird fake glowy images of the beautiful buildings of Amsterdam, to compensate for the fugly shopping-mall walls around you. And the giant beach mural, so you can pretend you're outdoors for a minute. The real question: Are they going to be able to keep the whole thing from crashing down around them in a few years?
