An Australian architect and winner of the 2002 Pritzker Prize, Glenn Murcutt developed his appreciation for vernacular architecture early on.
Documenting more than 30 years of his career, the numerous houses and other projects highlighted in this monograph confirm the respect and appreciation for simplicity and small-scale building Murcutt has earned.
From the Magney House and Fletcher-Page House to the Arthur and Ivonne Boyd Education Centre and a new mosque for the Newport Islamic Society, all aspects of his work are detailed.
A Conversation with Glenn Murcutt, by Sean Godsell, and the essay 'Feathers of Metal', by Juhani Pallasmaa, complete the volume.
