2014 GLENN MURCUTT INTERNATIONAL ARCHITECTURE MASTER CLASS 06 – 20 JULY 2014
The fourteenth annual Glenn Murcutt Architecture Master Class will take place in Australia next July at ‘Riversdale’, the Boyd Education Centre on the shores of the Shoalhaven River south of Sydney. The now famous event has attracted practising architects, academics, postgraduates and some senior students from 70 nations around the world since its inception in 2001. The two-week residential program consists of a design based studio, led by Pritzker Prize Laureate Glenn Murcutt and other eminent architects and teachers Richard Leplastrier, Brit Andresen, Peter Stutchbury and former Dean of Architecture at the University of Newcastle, Australia, Lindsay Johnston. The studio program is supported by tutorials, lectures, and guided tour visits to significant buildings by the ‘masters’.

As an architect, seeking professional mentorship becomes more and more difficult as one moves beyond one’s own academic training. The Murcutt Master Class 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. Self employed practitioner and part-time academic tutor, AIA, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

The two week residential design studio program is led by Glenn Murcutt with other tutors including Richard Leplastrier, Peter Stutchbury, Brit Andresen and, Master Class Convener, Lindsay Johnston. A major feature each year has been the insights contributed by Aboriginal Elder ‘Uncle’ Max Dulumunmun Harrison.Since its inception, participants from 46 nations have attended the program. Participants are primarily, now, practising architects – older and younger – with some professors, academics, recent graduates and a few senior students.

Participants stay for the first week in the exquisite hostel accommodation at the Boyd Education centre, designed by Murcutt with Wendy Lewin and Reg Lark and completed in 1999. Th ‘big room’ at ‘Riversdale’ is transformed into both banqueting hall and a design studio for six days while participants commence the conceptual design of a project located on a sensitive scenic site within walking distance of the venue. The program includes extensive site investigations, intensive studio tutoring, progress design critiques and after dinner lectures by the ‘masters’. The studio relocates to the University of Sydney for the second week, participants stay in a hotel near the University at Darling Harbour and culminates in final presentations and ‘Big Crit Day’. Other events in the program include visits to significant houses designed by Glenn Murcutt and the other tutors and, in previous years, a Sydney Harbour evening cruise.
