Maroochydore City Centre Master Plan
Client: Sunshine Coast Council
Brecknock Consulting was part of the MC3 collaboration team that was engaged by the Sunshine Coast Council to develop a detailed master plan for the redevelopment of the existing golf course into a new city centre for Maroochydore. The collaborative team was comprised of key landscape and urban design staff from Tract, Meter and Vee Design. Our role as cultural planning advisors to the team involved developing an integrated public art master plan through participation in design team sessions and stakeholder workshops. The resulting public art master plan provides a vision for the integration of artworks throughout the public spaces of the future city centre and for a program of temporary art interventions during the many years of construction. The objectives are to commission contemporary artworks that are relevant for the urban nature of the site, relevant to the subtropical environment and highlight and celebrate the unique qualities of the Sunshine Coast culture.
