Glenn Murcutt: Spirit of Place
Glenn Murcutt – Spirit of Place explores the life and art of Australia’s most famous living architect. Murcutt’s extraordinary international reputation rests on the beauty and integrity of his work. With a swag of international awards (including the prestigiousPritzker Prize) Murcutt has literally put Australian architecture on the world map. And yet, by choice, he has never built outside his own country.
Murcutt’s focus instead has been the creation of energy-efficient masterpieces perfectly suited to their environment and his breakthrough designs have influenced architects around the world. This documentary follows Glenn Murcutt, now 80 years old, as he designs his most ambitious project to date – a mosque for an Islamic community in Melbourne.
