In just a few months, Brisbane will know if it will play host to the 2032 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The decision, if affirmative, will put Brisbane in a position like no other host city in the history of the Olympics - it will have the longest lead time (11 years) to prepare for the event.
So, we are presented with the most real of hypotheticals - what does the future of place look like?
The Future of Place Task Force is interested in your views on this topic, and have set up a Discovery Board with public access so you can add your ideas.
We are asking three questions:
Share a place experience from a 'games' or 'games-like' event you have attended
You have three 'place wishes' for the 2032 Games... Go!
What is your leading metric for a successful place in 2032?
We don't know if place will be different in 2032 - what it looks like, how it feels, how we will interact with it and what we want from it. No one knows, because 2032 hasn't happened yet. And 11 years is a long way off.
We anticipate that some fundamentals will remain unchanged - our desire to be social and around people, seeking respite in nature, enjoying services offered through retail, an ability to exercise, and the need to transit.
But one thing is for sure - things will change. The relationship between people, place, technology and data will evolve between now and then.
