The authors explain how geospace design and construction will enable urban planners to cope with the most difficult challenges posed by the continued expansion of metropolitan areas. Topics covered include land preservation, urban land prices, urban scale and the response to a stressful climate. There are plans for developing underground spaces for transportation; delivery systems; infrastructure; residences; shopping and commercial spaces; and social and cultural activities. The focus is on integrating geospace with existing aboveground structures, with illustrated examples of specific design theories and methods.
