Glenn Murcutt Anna James 500153199 Construction & Structures 2 SRT251
Glenn Murcutt is a Pritzker Prize winner from Australia. His designs focus on developing economical buildings that conserve energy with basic accessible materials. He is well known as an environmental architect due to the balance of his designs with landscape, climate, location and cultural context. In many of Murcutt’s designs, he plays with roof curvature, steel, glass, brick and corrugated iron and pays close attention to the movement of the sun and the moon in varying seasons in relation to his site in order to harmonise the building with light and air movement.
