What makes a place? Is it bricks and mortar that build it, or the people that inhabit it? Is it the memories that have been made over millennia that keep it alive? Rapid change is not new to Brisbane. It is a city that has seen constant developments in industry, politics, lifestyle, architecture, and technology over its history, building layer upon layer.
