UQ Architecture students have been shortlisted in the 4000 Ideas Brisbane City Design Competition, for design concepts for the site of Brisbane Metro's new Cultural Centre station portal. 

The annual competition celebrates young architectural talent, generating new design ideas for Brisbane. This year the competition attracted many creative concept pitches, which range in scale and building purpose.

The site in question, currently a vacant slice of land between South Bank Train Station and Grey Street, will house a new state-of-the-art underground Cultural Centre station as part of the Brisbane Metro project. Designs and ideas by UQ and QUT architecture students are competing to win a top prize of $3,500. There will also be a People’s Choice award category, which will be decided on
