The University of Newcastle’s Art Gallery will soon be hosting an exhibition of Glenn Murcutt’s work titled Architecture for Place.
Presented by the Architecture Foundation Australia, this exhibition features architecture and drawings by Glenn Murcutt, photography by Anthony Browell, and video documentary by Catherine Hunter and Bruce Inglis.
Murcutt is Australia’s most internationally recognised architect and Architecture for Place profiles a selection of his built work and current projects, through his drawings and his working methods. Browell’s photography captures the essence of Murcutt’s design: harmony between building and nature. The exhibition particularly focusses on Murcutt’s houses, private residences that are not open to visitors. With his focus on the sustainability of the natural environment, Murcutt’s works are at the forefront of contemporary architecture. They are eloquent in form and refined in detailing, but primarily concerned with bringing the qualities of the surrounding world into the daily experience of the occupants.
Pursuing an architecture that is rooted in Australia’s culture and its diverse climate and topography, Murcutt is also active internationally, teaching and lecturing as a Professor at Universities throughout the world.
