Description
The 2011 Brisbane Ideas Competition is a forum for discussion about the future of Brisbane. It is open to all members of the public and is intended to encourage debate and discovery. The theme of this year's competition is expressed in the two following questions;

"What is missing from Brisbane?" & "What does Brisbane need for the future?"

There is a large amount of public infrastructure built, under construction and planned for Brisbane. There are new people visiting and moving to Brisbane each week. How will the city adapt to climate change? All of these factors influence the future and add to the cultural mix of the city. But what is missing? what is needed? This competition aims to discover your visions for Brisbane and imagine a positive future of what could be..
