ITACUS was represented by co-chairs Han Admiraal and Antonia Cornaro at the ACUUS World Conference 2018 on ‘Integrated Underground Solutions in Compact Metropolitan Cities’, which took place in Hong Kong from 3-5 November 2018. Presenting on ‘Investment-ready and bankable underground spaces', based on Chapter 7 of their recently published book, they sparked some interesting discussion points amongst the audience. During an expert panel debate, Han Admiraal was able to further contribute by pointing to issues that the book intensively addresses.
On the last conference day, Han and Antonia also held their, by now trademark, full book presentation on 'Underground spaces unveiled: planning and creating the cities of the future', highlighting various examples and chapters from their book as well as reading from the book to the audience. ITACUS National Action Think Deep UK was represented by Loretta von der Tann and Elizabeth Reynolds who also gave presentations. More information on the ACUUS conference can be found here.
