examples of underground space

examples of underground space

This is my first visit to this forum, so maybe I missed it.

Well, I am a student of architecture and I am working on a school project in which I want to make some architecture underground. I would like to build car parking places and multifunkcional cultural centre (theater, concert...) for about 500 visitors.

I am looking for such examples, but I had no luck. It is not necessary to have the same functions I mentioned, it is more important to me to get some feeling about the ranges for such structures.

Best regards and thank you!


RE: examples of underground space

hello peterp,

underground arcitecture is not my specialty. I just happen to know that in norway has been constructed an underground ice-skating field with extreme dimensions. I don't know its name to help you, but NGI was responsible for the design from rock mechanics point of view. Maybe they have infomationthat could be of interest to you.
The other case i know (a rather old one) is the rehabilitation of old salt mine spaces in Poland or the former Checkoslovakia but I don't think that this involved very important underground spaces.

Sorry for the poor information but I'll keep you in mind

White Paper - Addressing Tooling and Casting Requirements at the Design Stage
Several of the tooling and casting requirements of a part can be addressed at the design stage. If these requirements are not addressed at the design stage, lot of time is spent in design iteration when the design reaches the die caster. These design issues lead to increase in time and cost of production leading to delay in time to market and reduced profits for the organization. Download Now
