Futuro House - Home of the Future

AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND

While there do seem to be many examples of the Futuro in Australia & New Zealand I have not been able to find much information on them on the Internet. If anyone has more information to contribute on the Futuros down there would appreciate hearing from you.

The following links show the Futuro as Antarctica Work Stns. -- good sites to also learn about research on this distant continent !!

These are modified Futuro's [called "googies"] and were manufactured under licence in Adelaide. Originally, in the 1990s, four of the googies were sent to Heard Island and one to Mawson. Currently [as of May 2005], two of them are located at Bechervaise Island, one at Hop Island and two at Macquarie Island (Brothers Point and Waterfall Bay).
