The pylon forest serpentines and wades the wetness of the Northbank reaches of the Brisbane River. Reaching out of the mud it suspends a riparian walk and commuting corridor. Visitors trace out an interpretive journey through the resilient river landscape that is adapting and persevering.
This public space provides a large area for recreation and connection between Central Business District streets and river. Transit between the Central Business District, Southbank, Woolloongabba and Petrie Terrace is enhanced, inclusive of the riparian connection upstream and downstream.
The concrete pylons withstand the harshness of inundation, the pylon chasm is absorbent, it is flooded and the heavy, ridged structure appears floating. In dryness, the mud recedes leaving debris within the wetland. Sunlight permeates the wetland, photosynthesis is restored within a cyclical fluctuation of water flow.
