This Dazzling Atlantis

(with apologies to Ian Warden)

In today's Canberra Times, Ian Warden listed his list of five personal Canberra architectural favourites. He listed (with tongue in cheek maybe?):

  1. 18 Marcus Clarke Street, Canberra City;
  2. Namadgi National Park Visitors' Centre, Naas Road;
  3. The Canberra Incinerator at the Royal Canberra Golf Club;
  4. The clubhouse, Reid Tennis Club Reid; and
  5. the new Canberra Hospital multi-storey carpark.

Ian issued a challenge to his readers - "... why not ask yourselves ... which of Canberra's buildings you love?"

Well, Ian, here is my top five list:

3. Lake Tuggeranong College;

4. Canberra Italian Centre; and

5. Caroline Chisholm School.
    I'll try to provide a photo of the last building soon (anyone already have a snap of Caroline Chisholm School?).

    What are your five architectural favourites for your city or town?
