A brilliant book written by an incredible people- Antonia and Han.
A must read for everyone- I mean everyone not just urban planners or engineers. The book will change the way you travel, pass by or see an underground space.

The book discusses existing structures built in underground spaces and systematically explores the possibilities of further use of undergound spaces. The text although a bit technical, is fairly simple to understand. It is an engaging read.

To be honest, this topic has interested me since I was a child, so I thoroughly enjoyed reading this large-scale overview and all-encompassing survey. Even though it’s research heavy, it reads smoothly and makes what can potentially present itself and its content as highly complex accessible to pretty much anyone. Its clear organization walks you through a journey in each chapter, an overall journey from beginning to end, and at the end of each chapter provides a “This chapters core ideas” as a ...more

“Our model for determining sustainable urban
underground development provides a holistic
appraisal method for determining sustainability
or for planning and designing for sustainability.
Using the previously discussed approaches, it
presents a four-step approach considering both
the past, present and the future. As such, it
aims at urban underground developments that
preserve the past, enhance the present and
respect the future.”

Underground Spaces Unveiled disrupts current thinking on underground spaces by presenting and proposing beautiful, functional, futuristic and very human uses. The authors clearly argue that cities need to avoid subsurface chaos by developing strategies that connect above and below ground. They go on to explain how careful, planned use of the subsurface is essential for sustainable development. The book is fascinating for anyone interested in the future of urban spaces. While the book is written ...more

Underground Spaces Unveiled:Planning and creating the cities of the future by Hal Admiraal and Antonia Cornaro was an informative and interesting read as they make the case for use of the subsurface as an adjunct and compliment to our current topical living space. Throughout the book, the pair give scientific and historical evidence that supports the efficacy of exploring the underground as means not only for storage and transport of waste and energy materials but as a means to alleviate overcro ...more

With the increasing population, the strain on our living space is very much evident. In view of that, the book is an informative and interesting read as they put forth the use of the subsurface as an adjunct and compliment to our current living space.
What works in favor of the books is that it provides scientific and historical evidence that supports the efficacy of exploring the underground as means not only for storage and transport of waste and energy but also as means to reduce overcrowding
