he brief is to create an iconic, imaginative Games village with an identifiable heart that
demonstrates sustainable development and carbon critical design for the 2018 Commonwealth
Games held on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia, between 4 and 15 April 2018. The 2018
Commonwealth Games village is to host 6500 athletes and officials throughout the 11 days of
the competition. The village will accommodate residential, retail, recreation, dining and medical
services required for athletes during the competition. As the largest reclamation urban project for
the Gold Coast, the renovation of Parklands incorporates over 7 hectares of open area. The site is
planned to integrate 1,252 apartments (1,170 one and two bedroom apartments and 82
townhouses) housing 6,500 athletes and officials in the course of the games.
The scope of this report is focused on the Games Village itself, and while it ensures that the
village requirements needed for the Commonwealth Games can be met, this thesis is more
concerned about what will happen to a Village Post-Games and how to build it into a sustainable
community. This report entails the part of Sustainable community.
