Project Coordinator, Conrad Gargett

A Brisbane architecture student, Brendan developed a plan to transform Brisbane’s busy Riverside Expressway into a public transport and pedestrian-focused “greenway” that would enable the CBD to free itself from gridlock. Coined ‘Riverside Greenway’, the project aimed to radically change the conversation around how we build our cities; shifting our focus from planning for more cars and highways, to 21st-century planning reflective of our values, by prioritizing mass transit, cycling and accessible green space. Brendan Roffey is a twenty-one-year-old architecture student, finishing his masters at the University of Queensland and a project coordinator at Conrad Gargett.
