Event description
MSD presents Glenn Murcutt AO in conversation with Shelley Penn

About this Event

On the night before we officially open his lantern-inspired MPavilion, we’re inviting you to join our 2019 architect Glenn Murcutt AO in conversation with architect and urbanist Shelley Penn at the Melbourne School of Design. This special event will see Glenn speaking about his MPavilion design as well as his fifty-year career.

Often referenced as Australia’s most famous architect, Glenn is the only Australian recipient of the Pritzker Architecture Prize (2002), and is internationally recognised for environmentally sensitive and responsible designs with a distinctive Australian character. Remaining a sole practitioner since establishing his practice in 1969, Glenn developed a patient and refined approach to architecture early in his career. Principally residential and regional, notable projects including the Marie Short House (1974–75) near Kempsey in NSW; the Marika-Alderton House (1990-94) in Eastern Arnhem Land, NT; and the Simpson-Lee House (1988¬–93) in Mount Wilson, NSW. Glenn also designed the Arthur and Yvonne Boyd Education Centre (1996–99) at Riversdale, NSW, in collaboration with architects Wendy Lewin and Reg Lark, and the Australian Islamic Centre (2006–16) in Newport, Vic, in collaboration with Hakan Elevli.

This event will take place in Lecture Theatre B117 at the Melbourne School of Design, University of Melbourne.

Presented by ANZ.
