I love living in West End - it is a great community, keeps our carbon footprint small, close to work, school, church and entertainment. I save much time avoiding long and slow commuting. I am ready and willing to take the risk that my property will flood from time to time, as it did this January. Also, because it is my choice to live in West End and reap the daily rewards, I dont expect flood-reco
Move the whole city 25 miles north away from the flood plain.
To flood proof Queensland… we can put a cover over all the houses. This cover will protect our houses and make sure that the houses underneath don’t flood. The roof will carry the water through pipes to a different spot. The roof will open up in spots to let the rain come in and water our plants and trees and to let sunlight in. There will also be lights under the roof to help the plants grow.
Empower community members to better prepare and take step in emergency response situation. The state could provide infrastructure support but peoples on time action is vital.
This concept is unrealistic - The reality is Bne is on a flood-plain. We have to construct houses differently and accept that some houses are out of bounds - except for grazing animals
To flood proof the Brisbane River… we need to make it deeper. If this doesn’t work because we get too much rain, we can build temporary walls which are supported by steel bars. This will keep the water flowing in the river and not going into the city.
The site is located between the Goodwill Bridge and Macrossan Street. The site was not severely damaged by the flood waters and showed some resilience in its current state. The aim of the design concept is to increase the response time to remove valuable property before the arrival of a flood and the clean up after the flood, as a redesign of the whole site is not economically feasible. The d
To flood proof Queensland… we need to build houses on the hills. This will protect the important things if it does floods on lower ground. To help stop it flooding though we also need to put holes in the ground which lead to big underground tanks. This will also stop us from running out of water or going back into drought.
The ‘Floatable House’, designed by Matrix Design & Planning, is a conceptual proposal combining the house with a floating system. The floating system comprises three key components. 1.Movable Footing Due to the renovated structure of reverse trapezium shape struts sleeving concrete ‘mortar’, the building is sitting on the foundation rather than fixed on it. The design increases
We can’t stop Queensland flooding because we can’t control the rain. Also, it floods because there are things such as buildings and so on which get in the way. So,we need to grow more paperbark trees because these trees soak up lots of water. We also need to build our houses and buildings underground so that when it floods, they don’t get damaged. These underground houses will need a very lo
