I went and paid a visit to the much maligned Casey RACE by Cox Architects in Cranbourne the other day. Apart from the flooring, which frankly is a major stuff-up, the building is a pretty good example of a well designed aquatic facility.
In news that is a couple of weeks old, recently opened Cranbourne RACE by Cox Architects is coming under flack due to the fact that it has had to be closed due to the fact that the pool deck was found to be too slippery. However, what really grabs the attention in the above article is the sensationalist quotes from disability worker Michael Cleary, where he claims the following:
“This facility has the possibility of causing death, disability, disfiguration and acquired brain injury.”
I think he may have been misquoted as he has left out causing cancer as well. A little over the top don’t you think Mr Cleary.
