Glenn Murcutt: Singular Architectural Practice

Aug Murcutt is seen to produce an authentically Australian architecture that speaks of regional qualities while also participating in the international modernist discourse. This blend of exotic and the universal makes his work both intriguing and accessible. This is the first monograph in almost ten years of the Pritzker Prize laureate and recipient of the highly coveted Aalto Medal for architecture. Written by architecture critics Haig Beck and Jackie Cooper the book is divided into three sections; theory, practice, and technique, beginning with a series of brief essays, including one by Murcutt himself, on the technical, material, and aesthetic aspects of the work.
