DONALDSON HOUSE, SYDNEY BY GLENN MURCUTT
Latest/recent House (2016) by Glenn Murcutt, Palm Peach Sydney NSW Australia (Donaldson House)
A marvelous design and juxtaposition of materiality displaying the many of Murcutts wonderful design innovations and signatures. Glenn does wonderful buildings. Pritzker prize winner Australian architect.
He’s the reason I started architecture and studied all of his buildings. To hear him talk so passionately about architecture is amazing. To see his unparalleled drawings is an experience. To experience his buildings is life-changing. I cannot think of a better architect in Australia towhose work ALL students MUST study to learn the basics & complexities of architecture.
At uni people called me ‘Glenn’ (lol) because im basically a murcutt clone, before I got into Islamic architecture.. even till this day im amazed at his understanding of nature and architecture. its truly inspirational..
..and with no shame Im proud to say Im STILL a Murcutt clone and damn proud of it.

Our architecture should be (i) austere. (ii). utilitarian and (iii) sustainable. Non-contrived simplistic minimalism. The best sustainability is to reduce. The best architecture is less architecture.
