The Big Dig is a scientific wonder that materializes one of the most common childhood dreams: to dig a hole all the way to China! Berlin-based firm Topotek1, inspired by this seemingly impossible dream, dug a giant hole in Xian, China which stimulates an audio connection with Sweden, Germany, Argentina and the United States!

The firm explains the concept: “Transferred through the hole will be soundtracks of the life on the other side: cows from the pampas of Argentinas, commuters rushing among transit through New York City, the maritime life of Stockholm, and layers of history so audible among the streets of Berlin.” This incredible feat of engineering and architecture, which is the first has already become an exciting tourists prospect for the city of Xian.
