The recent flood damage to ferry infrastructure provides an opportunity to
re-assess the nature of the support infrastructure which was rudimentary. Since
public transport along the river has become integral to the city and an
identifier for Brisbane -an attribute of city life that sets us apart from other
cities- the next phase in the evolution of its support infrastructure is
justifiable and necessary.
Our entry in this “Ideas Competition” illustrates our main objective, which is to highlight and enhance the character of the system’s
various terminals. A key finding which defines our proposal, is the fact that each ferry landing location has its own unique contextual attributes and will need to handle differing intensities of passenger movement. Therefore “adaptability” and “flexibility” are essential to our proposed strategy. Our vision contemplates dynamic and movable terminals where physical and cultural variances will manifest in unexpected and changing ways.
