Glenn Murcutt Masterclass

Last week Clare worked for the Glenn Murcutt Masterclass. The program, now in its 18th year since beginning at Newcastle Uni in 2001, sees 30 odd national and international designers come together to work in teams of 4 on a design project under the tutelage of Glenn Murcutt, Lindsay Johnston, Brit Andresen, Peter Stuchbury and Richard Leplastrier.

The first week of the program takes place at Glenn Murcutts Arthur and Yvonne Boyd Education Center near Nowra. The second week is hosted in inner Sydney at Eco Outdoor Waterloo. There are talks, project visits, crits and lots of new friends. The tutors are ever present, giving advice to the group and guiding them though their design work.

This years project brief was a small art gallery for the Arthur and Yvonne Center to display Arthurs paintings in the context he often painted. Respect the site, build less, follow the contour, think about light. We were pretty blown away by the calibre of comments from the tutors, all spoken with such generosity, interest and enthusiasm. This program serves as one of Australias (if not the worlds) best models of architectural education outside of a traditional university setting. Taking part was great motivation for us as we begin the Five Mile School.

Thanks to the Ozetecture crew for a great week. Our photos below first of the Arthur and Yvonne Boyd Centre, then of the masterclass in Eco Outdoor.
