In the first edition of the Arup Journal for 1993, we begin by looking at our work on the Hong Kong University of Science & Technology, a new 7000 student university designed and built between 1986 and 1991.

Arup's Hong Kong team were responsible for the design of the site formation. surface water drainage, and foundations; infrastructure including roads, storm and foul water disposal, irrigation, and the seawater intake system; and all structural engineering for academic buildings and housing.

In Botswana, we look at how our team are examining existing provisions and designing new village water systems for a number of rural settlements, as part of the Botswana Government programme to combat the effects of the country's chronic water shortage.

In Madrid, Spain, Arup provided structural and services consultancy for the new Palacio de Villahermosa, delivered to house the collection of the Thyssen-Bornemisza family.
