What does a geothermal plant and casino have in common? Well, a group of Korean architects are studying the possibility of creating a mixed-use skyscraper in Las Vegas that will harvest geothermic energy and pockets at the same time. According to various studies, the United States has the largest territories where geothermic energy can be extracted and it is expected that by 2015 it will produce at least 15,000 MW.

This proposal might sound a bit radical, but its main concept is to investigate in safer geothermic plants that could be mixed with other programs in the middle of a city; a right where a large amount of electricity is required.
