2x2x2 Water Challenge for Ethiopia | BRISBANE

Following the first of the 2x2x2 challenges held in Sydney, the second competition was hosted by Griffith University (GU) in Brisbane with participant students from Design Futures (GU) and medical students of the group Towards International Medical Equality (TIME) University of Queensland (UQ).

Taking on lessons from the Sydney challenge, the four groups built from what was attempted and tested some new ways in which we can wash hands and faces on less than 2 Litres per person, per day. The range of complexity in systems varied from very simple to complex, and again the judges were looking for both systems that worked on the day as well as ideas that could be built upon with further testing (although may not have worked).

In Brisbane the Judges included:

Jennifer Taylor Architect

James Conner Architect & Planner

Dr. Sandra Meihubers Dentist, Teeth & Toilets

Kevin O’ Brien Architect

Susan Ellison Architect
