Never-before-seen unbuilt works from Australia’s most highly awarded architect.

Glenn Murcutt believes, ‘Architecture is not about a material, it’s about place-making. It’s about prospect, refuge, climate, topography, flora, fauna, it is about making beautiful spaces that link with the landscape.’ A thinker considered to be ahead of his time, Murcutt is one of the world’s most celebrated architects, having won the Alvar Aalto Medal, the Pritzker Architecture Prize and the American Institute of Architects Gold Medal. He is known for his highly considered process of discovery that responds uniquely to the Australian landscape.

Working in close collaboration with Murcutt, architect Nick Sissons, Murcutt’s former student and assistant, presents a selection of never-before-seen projects documenting the journey between some of the esteemed architect’s most notable works. Using extraordinary true-to-life renders, Glenn Murcutt: Unbuilt Works reveals ten previously unknown designs in remarkable detail, including original hand-drawn plans, sections, elevations and sketches from his personal archive. Murcutt discusses each project in detail, examining the progression of his design philosophy while lending a new perspective into his life and works. A revelation for any lover of architecture.
