UDAL is holding a double event on City Planning and the hosting of the Olympic Games. These are intended to share lessons from other cities that have hosted the Olympic Games, to provide an update on Brisbane’s own preparations for the Games to potentially be held here in 2032, and to generate new ideas and prospective potential projects as part of a ‘legacy’ of design, regeneration and place-making.
Over the big-ticket items like roads, rail, sporting venues and the Olympic Village, UDAL argues that such a major investment like hosting the Olympic Games should further enhance the quality of life and social integration for all people, through placemaking, art, design and culture – thus leaving a lifelong legacy to our city.
The first event is a Brisbane Conversation, on Wednesday 21 July 2021, with invited expert speakers leading the conversation with good examples and experiences that may be drawn from other Olympic cities.
The second, on Thursday 22 July 2021, is a half-day design charrette exploring measures to improve Brisbane as a confident, convivial, well-designed and culturally rounded city: the economy, culture, design and social life of good cities.
This UDAL event is held in partnership with artisan, and sponsored by Lendlease
