Glenn Murcutt: A Singular Architectural Practice

Images Publishing

Glenn Murcutt, Beck Haig & Jackie Cooper


  • Glenn Murcutt is one of the world's most celebrated living architects, and is widely hailed as Australia's architect laureate. He was awarded the 2002 Pritzker Prize in May 2002, and is one of only seven recipients of the prestigious Alvar Aalto Medal.

    IMAGES is pleased to present this outstanding and most up-to-date book on his work. Full-colour photography, much of it supplied from the architect's private collection, and a comprehensive selection of drawings and concept sketches, are complemented by Glenn's own notes, and the insightful commentary of internationally recognised architectural editors, Professor Haig Beck and Jackie Cooper.

    This book explores buildings and projects drawn from a wide variety of contexts: coastal, mountainous, tropical and desert, and urban. Glenn Murcutt has also been awarded the Thomas Jefferson Medal for Architecture, the Kenneth F. Brown International Award for Architectural Culture in the Asia Pacific region, and an International Honorary Fellowship from the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada.
