  • Marilu Melo Zurita, University of New South Wales: Urban Underground Spaces: Future Questions
    21 October, 13:00 – 16:00

    Urban underground space development is widely considered as an effective approach to help contemporary cities to achieve urban sustainability, resilience, liveability goal sand efficiency when it comes to service delivery.  We have organised this workshop to formulate question(s) about policy, governance, public engagement and investment, that will further our thinking when it comes to the integration of urban underground spaces into planning practices. We invite urban planners, geographers, architects, engineers, artists, environmentalists, geologists to join us on a 3-hour discussion about the role urban undergrounds are playing in the development of cities all over the world – from waste management and groundwater resources to data centres and critical transport infrastructure. Come and take part in an exciting exchange about urban integration and urban underground spaces.

    This workshop requires registration (deadline15th of October). Please follow this link for more information and registration.
