Glenn Murcutt, Pritzker prize-winner (2002) and Australia’s most internationally renowned and most important architect, holds an independent artistic position that consistently avoids the mainstream. He has a small private studio, and sees no need to avail himself of computers or new media in the realisation of his architectural vision or projects. Murcutt draws and builds — both forward-looking and equally anachronistic — one house after the other entirely on his own, having completed over 500 buildings in this way over the past 40 years. These buildings are all in Australia, almost exclusively housing and, with few exceptions, designed, planned and the construction was supervised by him in person.
