Design highlights


We’ve spoken with thousands of people across the city and together we developed a future blueprint for Brisbane. 


We're creating liveable places with vibrant neighbourhood centres for local communities and visitors to enjoy.


Botanica: Contemporary Art Outside is growing to become Council’s showcase public art event held annually in the City Botanic Gardens.


Public art is an expression of our city's culture and creativity. Find out about public art and urban design initiatives, projects and trails.
