|Glenn Murcutt: Buildings + Projects 1962-2003|
Author: Francoise Fromonot
Publisher: Thames and Hudson Ltd
|Amazon Price: |
|ArchitectureWeek This major monograph, the most complete and up-to-date volume available, spans Murcutt's entire career, from the early modernist houses to his most recent commissions. Francoise Fromonot examines Murcutt's early training and architectural influences and then analyzes how his buildings attempt to "marry modern architecture to the place, the territory, the landscape" to arrive at an ecological functionalism. The heart of the book focuses on the buildings themselves, an eclectic selection ranging from his courtyard houses in Sydney to freestanding residences set in Australia's barren and isolated landscapes. Full-color photography, much of it supplied from the architect's own private collection, testifies to the aesthetic appeal of the buildings, while Murcutt's line drawings and plans give further insight into his work.|
