Dusty and Thirsty aka Owen and Bobbie...

Feeling an itch that was unscratched by institutionalised learning (although eagerly supported) two architecture students devised a bicycle trip across Australia. Interested in our own country as a precedent for architecture rather than the traditional european, american or classical influences we undertakook this bicycle trip to slowly and intimately get dirty with Australia's girth...

Owen en route was undertaking his Masters of Architecture at the University of Newcastle, periodically sending back assignments...mostly on time. He grew up at the top of the Blue Mountains but has lived in Newcastle for the past six years studying and running his own design practice. He is very good at mistakes.

Bobbie was awarded the prestigious Byera Hadley scholarship to pursue this look at Australia. She has completed her Bachelor of Design (architecture) at the University of Newcastle and has a Diploma of Interior Design through an online something.  After completing her bachelor Bobbie travelled and worked internationally in Dallas, Texas, USA and Calca, Peru. Bobbie grew up in Singleton in the Hunter Valley and thanks to her travels is really into corn.
