The X-Seed 4000 is a proposed structure which would be as high as a mountain (4km/2.5mi) and would be able to accommodate up to 1 million inhabitants. It was created by architect Peter Neville in 1995 in a bizarre, but effective publicity stunt for an architecture firm. The plans for this astounding building were actually completed.  It would need at least 3 million tons of steel and the hefty sum of 1,000 billion dollars to build. According to Neville, the structure would have been built in Japan.
