Normanton2020 This exhibition showcases the work of 3rd -4th year undergraduate landscape architecture, architecture, Interior Design, Environmental Engineering, Civil Engineering students in response to issues of sustainability in the Gulf of Carpentaria town of Normanton.

16 students and four staff set off on a 2488km journey to undertake the second half of the Carpentaria Project (following Linking Karumba: Creating Sustainable Connections 2008), in the other Carpentaria Shire town of Normanton.

This project, Get EnGulfed: Normanton 2020, looked back and forwards to propose strategies strengthening local and regional identities. Our project partners recognised the need for a strategic approach to developing future visions for Normanton’s growth as a socially, culturally, economically and ecologically sustainable town in the decade to 2020.

They proposed: Project aims to foster: • Enhanced liveability; • A strengthened expression of town identity; • Expanded sustainable tourism.

Primary challenges & opportunities: • Remoteness; • Two seasons: wet & dry; • Local economy; • Society and Cultural Heritage.

The Exhibition Four groups of four students produced four strategic planning and design options toward this future: Mud Maps of Normanton: Rhys Belnap, AJ Humphries, Amos Shirreff, Haiku Van Keuk Normanton: Stay Another Day: Belle Dalton, Tom Jordan, Josh Nielsen, Carla Ramsland The Sweet Spot on the Savannah Way: Daniel Lapham, Yvonne Phillips, Patrick Poon, Dan Young Resilience Through Diversity: Jillian Kenny, Tania Metcher, Stephen Orr, Evan Thompson
