The present paper describes two multidisciplinary design courses, named Project X and Project X2, that were available for the first time in 2007 to students from three design-based faculties at the University of New South Wales (UNSW): Faculty of the Built Environment (FBE), College of Fine Arts (COFA) and Faculty of Engineering (FE). During these courses the students designed, fabricated and constructed from cardboard and timber an enormous sculpture of a snake, nick-named Ed and consisting of five massive arches and a five meter tall head.
