The Museum of Architecture and Design hosted a public talk with Pritzker Prize winner Glenn Murcutt. The talk was introduced and moderated by dr. Aleš Vodopivec.
Glenn Murcutt is one of the world's most important architects of our time and presents a strong contrast to most of the global architectural stars. He builds mostly small-scale architecture and uses normal, everyday, non-luxurious materials. Unlike most contemporary architects, he does not run an architectural office with many coworkers, but he works alone. Vodopivec and Murcutt will discuss about Murcutt's work and planning principles that open up many, of the important issues of the contemporary architecture.
