Glenn Murcutt— Spirit of Place explores the life and work of Australia’s most internationally recognized architect. Murcutt’s extraordinary reputation rests on the beauty and integrity of his buildings. With numerous awards (including the 2002 Pritzker Architecture Prize, the 1992 Alvar Aalto Medal and the 2009 American Institute of Architect’s Gold Medal) Murcutt has literally put Australian architecture on the world map. Murcutt’s focus has been the creation of energy-efficient masterpieces perfectly suited to their environment and his breakthrough designs and teaching have influenced architects around the world.

Murcutt has long eschewed publicity preferring to let his work speak for itself. Despite this, he agreed to allow filmmaker Catherin Hunter to explore his most seminal houses and follow him as he embarks on his most challenging project to date— a mosque for the Newport Islamic community in Melbourne.
