Glenn Murcutt, an Australian architect who in 2002 won his field’s highest honor, the Pritzker Prize, is probably the most atypical of the great living architects. And whereas most virtuoso architects win and sustain their reputations by erecting major civic buildings, Murcutt has built only a few modest public edifices, including a mining and minerals museum in the outback (!) and a visitors’ center for a remote national park; his stature rests almost entirely on the more than 500 clean-lined, ecologically sound houses he’s designed.

The Pritzker Architecture Prize Laureate for 2002, Australian architect Glenn Murcutt has created an oeuvre that is remarkably consistent, unusual in character, and yet curiously familiar. His buildings, principally residential, are a harmonious blend of modernist sensibility, local craftsmanship, indigenous structures, and respect for nature. Murcutt established his one-man studio in Sydney in 1969; even today, with few exceptions, he practices alone. This major monograph on Murcutt spans his entire career, from his early modernist houses to larger commissions. The first section examines his training and architectural influences, while the second identifies recurring themes in his work and analyzes how his buildings attempt to "marry modern architecture to the place, the territory, the landscape," to blend modern typology with traditional Australian models to arrive at an ecological functionalism. The final section focuses on the buildings themselves, and, for this revised edition, all thirteen of his most recent projects have been included. The structures range from Murcutt's courtyard houses in Sydney to freestanding residences set in Australia's barren and isolated landscapes. At a time when climatic considerations and the lessons of the vernacular play an increasing role in architecture around the world, this definitive monograph reveals an architect whose work is the perfect expression of these ideals. 500 illustrations, 350 in color.

Great book, unfortunately I had to send it back because the seller sent a copy that had pages cut out as well as damaged copy. The seller also did not state it was a library copy!!
  • Spilberg
Murcutt is final getting his due recognition. this book has it all, and allows one to get an overall sense of his unique career and influences
  • Duktilar
While everyone in this world seems to be keen to build more and more complicated buildings, that are later called sustainable (...) you should have a look at one of the more unknown top-architects of the XX century. Glenn Murcutt began in the sixties to mix modern influences with the traditional Australian Architecture and has since then produced a new style, that is not only wonderful in design but also features a great low-tech aproach to sustainable architecture.
note: green can look really cool!

a very accurate guide of one of the best architects nowadays. Ideal for professionals or anyone who's intersted in getting to now about contemporary architecture
