Abstract

South Bank is now a well-established part of Brisbane's lifestyle and entertainment scene. From the preparation of Expo 88 as part of Australia's bicentennial celebrations to the redevelopment of the site post-Expo, South Bank has been intensely masterplanned. This qualitative research is a longitudinal study of the evolution of the South Bank masterplan described by tracking the masterplanning responses to crises. The evolution of South Bank masterplanning is related through its leaders who participated in a semi-structured telephone interview. The interviews and archival masterplans chronologically illustrated the responses to crises and effects of masterplanning for certainty and uncertainty.

南岸区典型地展现了布里斯班的生活、休闲方式。这里举办过作为澳大利亚两百周年庆祝活动之一部分的1988年博览会,博览会之后又对展区进行了再次开发,布里斯班现已经历了大规模的统筹规划。本文是一项长期定性研究,通过跟踪统筹规划对危机做出的反应,研究南岸区统筹规划的发展。我们对南岸区统筹规划的主导人物进行了半结构性的电话采访。访谈和历年的档案材料说明了这些规划对危机所做的反应,以及统筹规划的确定性和不确定性
