Students from the College of Fine Arts and the Faculties of Engineering and Built Environment have combined their talents to design and build a new artists' residence at UNSW's Arid Zone Research Station.

The residence is the result of a multi-disciplinary course, ProjectX3, which provides students with an opportunity to design and construct a building to a client brief.

Advisor to the Macquarie Bank art collection, Julian Beaumont, sponsored ProjectX3, with participating faculties offering additional financial support.

The environmentally sustainable building will provide additional accommodation for visiting artists as well as students and researchers from COFA's Imaging the Land International Research Initiative.
