Glenn Murcutt - Spirit of Place - Premiere Film Screening
Fri. 2 December 2016, 6:00 pm – 7:45 pm AEDT
You are invited to attend a new film exploring the life and work of Australia’s most internationally recognised architect and Pritzker Prize winner, Glenn Murcutt.
A Q&A will follow the screening, with Glenn Murcutt in conversation with Helen Lochhead and Richard Leplastrier.
This will be followed by post drinks and canapés in the Tusculum foyer.
With a swag of international awards (including the prestigious Pritzker Prize) Glenn Murcutt has literally put Australian architecture on the world map. And yet, by choice, he has never built outside his own country. Glenn’s focus instead has been the creation of energy-efficient masterpieces perfectly suited to their environment and his breakthrough designs have influenced architects around the world.
Presented in association with Director Catherine Hunter, this documentary follows Glenn as he designs his most ambitious project to date – a mosque for an Islamic community in Melbourne.
Tickets include pre (6pm-6.30pm) pre and post event drinks (7.45pm - 8.15pm).
