Green futures and grey implications of a new park in Brisbane

Green futures and grey implications of a new park in Brisbane: visions for the Victoria Golf Course

The seminar will focus on the analysis conducted by professors Bottero and Santangelo on decision-making processes for supporting urban transformation scenarios and their policy implications. In particular, the seminar will reflect on the recently announced transformation of the Victoria Golf Course into a new park for the city of Brisbane. This transformation represents a great opportunity for the surrounding areas as well as the city as a whole, but concerns may be raised as regards the impact that it will have on uplift of properties value and related effects on parts of the population in neighbouring communities.

Associate Professor Marta Bottero and Associate Professor Marco Santangelo are part of the RAISE: Rapid Analytics Interactive Scenario Explorer Toolkit project in the QUT Design Lab. The seminar will see professors Bottero and Santangelo first present their findings and then taking part in a Q&A session.

Join Marta, Marco and the QUT Design Lab for networking and light refreshments after the event.
