Architecture For Place

In Montreal the Centre de Design de l’UQAM is hosting an exhibition on the work of Glenn Murcutt, Australia’s most internationally recognized architect.

Architecture For Place
“Glenn Murcutt: Architecture for Place” profiles a selection of the architect’s work through drawings and photographs illustrating 40 years of his practice and working method. The focus is on several private residences, not open to the public, reflecting the architect’s concern for harmony between building and nature.

With his early concern for the sustainability of the natural environment, Murcutt has been at the forefront of contemporary architecture. His built works, mostly private homes, demonstrate rare formal eloquence and refinement of detail. They are designed to bring the qualities of the surrounding environment into the daily lives of the occupants.
The exhibition features drawings illustrating the architect’s creative process through the various stages of design, from rough sketches to working drawings. Photos by British photographer Anthony Browell demonstrate the harmony between the buildings and their natural environment.
