My childhood holidays were spent at Point Lookout, North Stradbroke Island in Queensland, usually in relatively primitive accommodation. Recently I was surprised to see a "shack" on the island listed in a very large and very expensive book of world architecture (at the National Gallery of Victoria Store). I neglected to record any of the details, assuming if the building was this famous I would be able to do a quick check online for it. But I can't find it. The building seems to be at "Domain Stradbroke Resort". The book might be "Phaidon Atlas of 21st Century World Architecture". Who designed the building? Is it in a book of world architecture? Why?
If you remmber Straddie in less spophisticated times, you'll remember the Stradbroke car-a-park, a privately run park where weekenders (and lots lifesaving families) kept old vans. Well,it was sold and demolished a few years ago and little dog-boxes were built and on-sold for exorbitant prices - http://www.stradbrokedomain.com/rooms/1_room_shack.php - traceygethe Domain...
