The Australian architect, Glenn Murcutt, began his career in Sydney in 1956 and has since achieved international fame. His buildings, principally residential, are a blend of modernist sensibility, local craftsmanship, indigenous structures, and respect for nature. This book traces the path of his career, from his early modernist houses to larger commissions. The book examines Murcutt's early training and architectural influences, and goes on to identify recurring themes in his work, and to analyze how his buildings are an attempt to blend modern typology with traditional Australian models. The main section focuses on 22 building projects, ranging from courtyard houses in Sydney to free-standing residences set in Australia's barren and isolated landscapes.
