Melbourne Museum is showing an exhibition of the work of Glenn Murcutt, whose designs focus on sustainability and the natural environment. Murcutt’s projects draw on Australian culture, diverse climate and topography, bringing the qualities of the surrounding natural and cultural landscape into the experience of his buildings.

_Glenn Murcutt: Architecture for Place_ explores a selection of Murcutt’s projects through his drawings and scale models. The projects are brought to life through photographs by Anthony Browell, illustrating the harmony between building and nature that resonates through Murcutt’s architecture.

The exhibition offers visitors a chance to discover many of Murcutt’s private residences that are not open to the public, such as the award-winning Arthur and Yvonne Boyd Art Centre at Riversdale, NSW. Also on display are conceptual drawings for a new Mosque in the Melbourne suburb of Newport.
