Video: An Interview with Glenn Murcutt



An interview with the always inspirational architect, Glenn Murcutt on the ABC show Talking Heads. His architecture is a perfect example of a sustainable approach to building. Sensitive to the surrounding environment and in touch with the local culture Mr. Murcutt's buildings are beautiful and responsible. I am particularly interested to see a couple of the projects he is currently working on - a museum and mosque. It seems he is shifting away from the use of steel as his primary building material and exploring submerged buildings and heavier earth materials. In any case, I was lucky enough to study under his tutelage for a few weeks and saw him present some drawings of his work in progress. They look to be stunning contributions to his already legendary body of work. For more information on his sustainable architecture and the Glenn Murcutt International Masters Class that he runs every summer check out these articles:
