A placemaking legacy

"In preparing for Brisbane 2032 we need to think about the lived experience that Olympic and Paralympic projects can help us deliver. What story do we want our public spaces, venues, accommodation and transport to tell about our Queensland lifestyle? How can the spaces we plan make life better for our communities decades into the future? The opportunity is huge to make Brisbane 2032 the 'placemaking Games' and create a proud legacy for Queensland."
