Full Description
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 Pritzker Prize in May 2002, and is one of only seven recipients of the prestigious Alvar Aalto Medal. This astounding volume is the most up-to-date book on Murcutt s work. Full-colour photography, much of it supplied from the architect s own 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, not to mention 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 was recently awarded an International Honorary Fellowship from the Royal Institute of Canadian Architects.
