The 'Pyramid Project' is a unique concept for a sustainable housing complex to be built by LAR in the Mexican city of Merida. The city of Merida is on the Yucatan Peninsula, home of the ancient Mayan civilization.

The 'Pyramid Project' would be constructed just like an ancient Mayan pyramid, complete with modern, eco-friendly amenities. Each floor would have vegetation of some sort on it to help keep cooling costs low, while solar panels and rainwater retrievers will keep overall power usage to a minimum.
