Catherine Hunter’s outstanding 2017 documentary Glenn Murcutt: Spirit of Place explores the life and work of Australia’s most famous living architect. Glenn’s extraordinary international reputation rests on the beauty and integrity of his buildings. With a swag of awards, including the prestigious Pritzker Prize, he has put Australian architecture on the map. By choice, he has never built outside of his own country. This is because he believes one must understand a place intimately before good design is possible. He has no staff, no computer and no email. Glenn insists good design comes from the hand not the computer.
Glenn allowed documentary filmmaker Catherine to follow him as he embarked on his most challenging project to date, a mosque for the Newport Islamic community in Melbourne in collaboration with architect Hakan Elevli.
The film screening will begin with a Q&A with Glenn Murcutt, Hakan Elevi and Emma Telfer followed by the screening.
The Kiosk will be open, serving snacks and refreshments.
