Glenn Murcutt International Architecture Master Class

October 28, 2009

A two week residential design studio program led by Glenn Murcutt with Richard Leplastrier, Peter Stutchbury, Brit Andresen and convener Lindsay Johnston.

The tenth Glenn Murcutt International Architecture Master Class will be held in Australia at Glenn Murcutt’s “Masterwork”, the Arthur and Yvonne Boyd Education Centre ‘Riversdale’ on the banks of the Shoalhaven River south of Sydney, and at the School of Architecture at the University of Sydney, 11-25 July 2010.

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. The ‘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, with participants staying in a hotel near the University at Darling Harbour. The program 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.
