Welcome to Issue #010 of indesignlive.com Queensland (iQ).
Note from the Editor:
“Having the privilege recently of walking through various projects entered into the Australian Institute of Architects’ Queensland Regional Awards, I am struck by the importance, and success, of achieving conviviality in design.
In public and private spaces, designers are aptly igniting a conversation between outdoors and indoors and between public and private realms. Notions of privacy are changing and design is responding in interesting ways. Cyberspace interactions seem to encourage rather than disable the phenomenon of vibrant, active spaces, as Professor Carlo Ratti’s research (see video link below) would indicate.
Lively public spaces and private spaces which offer something back to their neighbours – the new millennium village perhaps – are exemplified in many of the projects in this issue. The clear china blue skies and crisp autumn air we’ve just started to enjoy again are welcome collaborators in the process.

The internet never sleeps! Here's the stuff you might have missed
Has co-working been up-staged by the pervading popularity of an out-of-office culture? The answer is, not quite yet!
