Glenn Murcutt International Architecture Master Class

The Architecture Foundation Australia is inviting leading international practices to send a mid-career participant to the 2018 Glenn Murcutt Master Class to spend quality time with Pritzker Prize Laureate Glenn Murcutt, who is currently Chair of the Pritzker Prize Jury. The ethics, and commitment to worthy architecture, of Glenn Murcutt are world renowned, and it is seen as important that his knowledge and wisdom are passed to future generations of architects internationally.

The Glenn Murcutt Architecture Master Class has become a major annual event on the international architecture calendar. Started in 2001, architects and senior students from over 80 nations around the world have traveled to Australia to participate in the two-week residential studio based program. Participants have the opportunity to work with four tutors—all Gold Medallists of the Australian Institute of Architects: Glenn Murcutt (1992), Richard Leplastrier (1999), Brit Andresen (first female recipient 2002) and Peter Stutchbury (2015).

As an architect, seeking professional mentorship becomes more and more difficult as one moves beyond one’s own academic training. The GMMC is a rare and invaluable opportunity to find such mentorship and fraternity. The experience will exceed your expectations and give you a rare and indelible opportunity to participate in something truly remarkable. Glenn Murcutt, Brit Andresen, Richard Leplastrier, Peter Stutchbury and Lindsay Johnston provide you a rare glimpse into the meaning, power and necessity for architecture. This truly is a rare experience, which will forever shape you as an architect

The first week is held at the Arthur and Yvonne Boyd Education Centre on the awesomely beautiful Shoalhaven River south of Sydney. Participants live in what has been described as Glenn’s "Master Work," spend time there with Glenn Murcutt and experience private visits to some of his famous houses. Glenn personally leads the Master Class, stays at the Boyd Centre with the participants, and tutors all groups. The second week in 2018 will be held, as in previous years, in a heritage building in the art precinct of Sydney.
