How would you like to teach philosophy in a cave?

Two of [Singapore's] public universities, Nanyang Technological University and the National University of Singapore, have completed preliminary studies on developing the space beneath their campuses for lecture theaters, laboratories, sports facilities and performance halls. A third school, Singapore Management University, has already constructed a basement-level space linking its main above-ground buildings.
Does this mean the my old colleague from The Valve, John Holbo, is going to have his very own cave in which he can teach Plato's allegory of the cave? How cool!
