Permanent Camping catches judges' attention

The always interesting Audrey Tempelsman from Dwell Blog asks why we like sheds so much. "Is it," she asks, "because they embody the no-more-than-you-need lifestyle that Blackberry-bound urbanites and eco-minded modernists long for?" That's certainly one answer. Her ponderings are aroused by the announcement of the results of the Australian Institute of Architects Small Project award. Among the commended projects was the rather attractive Permanent Camping, a 3x3m prefab by Casey Brown with copper-clad siding to fight off brush fires and lousy weather. It has two folding sides, a sleeping loft, kitchen and a copper-clad outhouse.
