2 thoughts on “SUNPORTAL Technology Makes Underground Parks a Reality

  1. Thanks for this article Derrick! I think technologies like this can really help ensure a balance between high density development and the need for sufficient green spaces – particularly in cities such as Singapore where land is already such a scarce resource. The low line lab, located in an old abandoned warehouse is also a great example of adaptive reuse of space.


  2. To piggyback off of Nicole’s comment, this technology was recently used in NY’s LowLine, where the city built an underground park out of an abandoned trolley line. By directing natural light below the street, cities have another alternative to create year-round underground parks. This will create new habitats for plants and potentially agriculture, and give us some desperately needed green infrastructure. Since it is scalable, it can be used in large and small projects.
