The World's First Underground City Plan...

A small section of the Helsinki Underground City Plan (Image from the World Design Capital 2012 Web page)...


Came across this post and found it intriguing enough to include here as a submission. Apparently Helsinki, the recently announced World Design Capital for 2012, is to have the world's first underground city plan. Most parts of the Finnish capital's centre can already be accessed through various underground links, and there are a surprising amount of venues and utilities, including the central bus station, which are located below street level. Apparently the city has already over 9 million square meters of underground spaces..! Click here for the original link...
