The third book in the Architectural Research Tribune collection is dedicated to the thought and craft of Australian architect Glenn Murcutt.
The proposal by the Argentinean architect and researcher Matías Beccar Varela is a magnificent example of the possibilities of the conversation format and the lessons that can be drawn from Murcutt’s creative processes for the enormous challenges facing architecture today, specifically in relation to our footprint on the planet.
Kenneth Frampton in his preface notes how the book “reminds us of the lasting poetic and practical pertinence of Murcutt’s exceptional ecological vision which while specifically addressed for the varying climate of the Australian continent, is of equal relevance for the cultivation of architecture world-wide”. The conversations took place in various Murcutt’s everyday locations between December 2018 and January 2019, and are accompanied by a series of Murcutt’s original drawings of very different natures, from initial or schematic sketches to final and constructive drawings.
