QDesign the New Roadmap for Cities of the Future HOME > QDesign the New Roadmap for Cities of the Future

New guidelines released by the Palaszczuk Government today will help ensure the state’s unique lifestyle remains the envy of the nation.

Minister for Housing and Public Works Mick de Brenni said the QDesign report would help shape the quality, character and experience of Queensland’s streets, parks, open spaces and buildings for years to come.

“Good urban design plays an essential part in the transformation of our modern cities, towns and regions and also has a major influence on how we live, work and play,” said Mr de Brenni.

“QDesign articulates the key values and desired qualities for future development and public works throughout Queensland,” he said.

“Written by architects, for architects, QDesign offers a unifying position statement of priority design values for our state for the first time.

This will be a blueprint for design practitioners, developers, community representatives and local councils across Queensland.”

Mr de Brenni said that Queensland had a unique climate and topography and needed its own unique design approach.
