Pros and cons of smart valorisation and reuse of abandoned underground cavities

Abstract : This Keynote lecture deals with the sustainable development of abandoned cavities and underground structures. We discuss the pros and cons of such actions. In fact, France has had a significant historical underground activity. These cavities must be intelligently managed and valued. Cavities should not only be considered as a source of nuisance or risk but may also be an element of sustainable development. The challenges of the society including climate change, energy and ecological issues, calls for a change in the organization and physiology of the city in order to move towards a more sustainable city model. The underground space can contribute to make the city sustainable. The keynote presents some strategic orientations of valorisation of abandoned underground excavations: visits, storage, etc. We present the conditions and the urbanistic modalities of smart re-use of the underground “Brasserie” limestone exploitation(Paris – France) and discuss how these valorisations may contribute to the maintenance of voids and risk prevention.
