NOT TO BE MISSED: UNDERGROUND SPACES UNVEILED - BOOK PRESENTATION


29 March 2018

Antonia Cornaro and Han Admiraal will be unveiling their new groundbreaking book on underground space development at the 2018 ITA-AITES Open Session at WTC 2018 in Dubai.



Tuesday 24 April 2018 - 9:40 - 10:00 am



In a ground breaking new book Antonia Cornaro and Han Admiraal challenge the common perception that the development of underground spaces is only for cities that have a scarcity of land. They argue that both the sustainable development goals and the new urban agenda require cities to look at the planning and use of underground space. In a book written for urban planners, urban designers, architects, geologists, engineers, and for policy makers and decision makers, they unveil a hidden urban asset as able to provide solutions for many of the challenges urban areas face now and in the future. The publication of the book is timely as cities are evermore being challenged by rapid urbanisation, climate change and the need for urban resilience.


In line with the overall congress theme of 'The role of underground space in future sustainable cities' this presentation cannot be missed by those attending WTC 2018. Please join the ITA-AITES Open Session where the authors will unveil their book to a worldwide audience of underground space professionals.
