The development of knowledge nodes and health hubs as key structuring elements of the sustainable city region

Abstract

Universities and hospitals are recognised as key infrastructure in the social and economic life of the city. These facilities can make a major contribution to urban sustainability by virtue of their locations, their interrelationships, and their coordination with transport infrastructure investments. The strategic placement and development of universities, hospitals and associated facilities can focus urban development in a way that mitigates climate change pressures and underpins the social and economic sustainability of the developing city region.This paper reviews several case studies in the development of knowledge nodes and health hubs in the emerging city region of South East Queensland (SEQ). The case studies include recognised knowledge nodes and health hubs (including the Smart City Strategy for Brisbane; Kelvin Grove Urban Village; Griffith University and Gold Coast Hospital; Sippy Downs – Kawana), as well as several unrecognised nodes and corridors that could be capitalised upon to strengthen the
sustainability of SEQ. The case studies reveal a shift from highway based concepts of urban structure
to one in which the development of active transport is seen as essential to the flourishing of creative communities. The paper concludes that a broader and more strategic approach to knowledge nodes
and health hubs could underpin the sustainability of SEQ and other up and coming city regions.
