Global Knowledge Precinct Best Practice
Best practice analysis is a common method to learn from the success and also failure factors of the leaders of the field and develop customised policies to apply in another context. This also applies to the knowledge and innovation space development planning. The chapter focuses on placing global knowledge precinct best practice under the place making microscope and drawing lessons for other cities. The investigated cases include 22@Barcelona from Spain, Silicon Valley from the USA, One-North from Singapore, and Macquarie Park from Australia. The lessons generated are discussed in the context of for Brisbane from Australia to consider. However, the findings are also relevant to many other cities with emerging knowledge precincts.
