Summary "This major monograph on Murcutt spans his entire career, from his early modernist houses to larger commissions. The first section examines his training and architectural influences, while the second identifies recurring themes in his work and analyzes how his buildings attempt to "marry modern architecture to the place, the territory, the landscape," to blend modern typology with traditional Australian models to arrive at an ecological functionalism. The final section focuses on the buildings themselves, and, for this revised edition, all thirteen of his most recent projects have been included. The structures range from Murcutt's courtyard houses in Sydney to freestanding residences set in Australia's barren and isolated landscapes."--BOOK JACKET
