Urban Planning & Public Space

Dear Brisbane,

I should warn you, this is a love letter. I love you for the beach in the middle of the city, cafes on every corner, lounge chairs in the parks and the pop-up events that always seem to be happening. Giant chess in any other city's public squares doesn't hold the same appeal. I love you for the people in these spaces. Casual, friendly and daring. The ones who walk, ride, climb and canoe in the urban center and always say hello, smiles as bright as the summer sun. Grow bigger but don't change
