Never-before-seen unbuilt works from Australia's most highly awarded and celebrated 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 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 some of the esteemed architect’s most notable works. Using extraordinary true-to-life renders, Glenn Murcutt: Unbuilt Works reveals ten previously unseen 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 presenting a new perspective into his life and works. A revelation for any lover of architecture.

Author Nick Sissons studied architecture at the University of Technology, Sydney. After completing his degree, he worked with Glenn Murcutt as an assistant on the Fletcher Page House in Kangaroo Valley, New South Wales. In 1997, Sissons traveled by motorcycle from Sydney to London, where he joined Foster + Partners. Sissons became a UK-registered architect and a member of the RIBA. He returned to Sydney in 2003, where he now lives and works with his wife, Patricia. They established their award-winning practice, Sissons Architects, in 2012.
