2015 ArchiCamp took place 2-5 October in Butterwick NSW (Hunter Valley). Over 70 architecture and design students from 6 states gathered with some 20 guests and tutors, including Rick Leplastrier, Lindsay Johnston, Kerry and Lindsay Clare, and Drew Heath, aiming to directly benefit through design work the flood-damaged town of Dungog NSW, as well as future sustainable village of Shepherds Ground.
ArchiCamp introduced 5 real design projects, which have been successfully addressed and outcomes well received by the community representatives. Students with architect mentors will now continue developing their designs through to DA submission.
