The Museum of Architecture and Design hosted a public talk with Pritzker Prize winner Glenn Murcutt. The talk was introduced and moderated by dr. Aleš Vodopivec.

Glenn Murcutt is one of the world's most important architects of our time and presents a strong contrast to most of the global architectural stars. He builds mostly small-scale architecture and uses normal, everyday, non-luxurious materials. Unlike most contemporary architects, he does not run an architectural office with many coworkers, but he works alone. Vodopivec and Murcutt will discuss about Murcutt’s work and planning principles that open up many, of the important issues of the contemporary architecture.

This is a great talk! Glenn Murcutt goes on about life like an encyclopedia. The stories about his childhood and his dad are my favorite. Recommend this interview to anyone, not just architects.

I came across your name as I was searching for some advice on the internet. I am a PH. D. I have two years until I fully retire. If you and your wife are in California in the near future, come and visit. I live on a golf course in Huntington Beach (surf city) CA.

Very good interview. I love the parts he talked about his childhood at PNG.
Sustainable designs by most architects are a joke in comparison to Glenn Murcutt's approachs.
