Glenn Murcutt is an Australian architect. In 2002 he won the Pritzker Prize, the world's highest award for architecture. This documentary explores some of the houses Murcutt has designed, as well as the mosque in Melbourne's Newport, which he has designed for the area's Muslim community – a radical design that honours Islamic traditions within a distinctively contemporary building. We hear from Murcutt and his clients and colleagues about what makes his work so distinctive and responsive to Australian conditions.
Glenn Murcutt: Spirit of Place would be a valuable resource to show to middle and senior secondary students across a range of curriculum areas, as well as to tertiary students working in the areas of art and design, building, architecture and sustainability in relation to building design.
