Architects without Frontiers and Ozquest: Working in Nepal on community projects.
This year OzQuest is running its fourth international program which will provide participants with the opportunity to design + assist in the construction of work in different Nepalese communities.
In this presentation, students will be inspired and see how they might have an opportunity to use their skills to participate in an expedition and be able to work alongside local tradesmen and Nepalese Architecture students to construct a facility for a small village in Nepal, be exposed to world heritage architecture and the people and culture of Nepal.
