The 2011 floods affected approximately 200,000 people across South East Queensland (SEQ); past flooding data and future climate change predictions suggest these severe weather events will only become more intense and frequent.

The Water Futures book is the culmination of over 5 years of work by many people - all experts in their own right - from many disciplines, professions and walks of life. Hundreds of hours of collaborative efforts have gone into the making of this book. Everyone involved worked from the same premise:

If SEQ is to flourish in the midst of severe weather events and an increasing population, the region as a whole needs an integrated approach to water management and flood mitigation. An approach built on adaptability to protect us during periods of drought and flooding rains. A strategy that brings communities, Local, State and Federal Governments together to create a vision to our water future.


What we present in this book are the beginnings of this vision. Through the medium of design, we propose a range of water management and urban design solutions and strategies that not only protect us in times of need and build community resilience, but will also reduce our ecological impact and improve our quality of life in the face of more frequent and extreme weather events. Water is the key to this; retaining water during drought and allowing it to either flow or slowing it down during floods.

Learn. Design. Adapt.
