Glenn Murcutt – Spirit of Place explores the life and work of Australia’s most celebrated architect. Murcutt’s focus has been the creation of energy-efficient masterpieces that sit lightly on the land and are perfectly suited to their environment. His breakthrough designs and teaching have influenced architects around the world.
Yet he is an enigma. By choice, he has never built outside his own country. He has no staff, no computer and no email. He insists good design comes from the line of the hand rather than the computer.
Murcutt has long eschewed publicity preferring to let his work speak for itself. Despite this, he agreed to allow filmmaker Catherine Hunter to explore his most seminal houses and follow him as he embarks on his most challenging project to date – a mosque for the Newport Islamic community in Melbourne.
Highly recommended.
