Touch The Earth Lightly: Murcutt
Dir. Peter Hyatt/hyattgallery
The early phase of Glenn Murcutt’s stellar career is captured by documentary-maker
and architectural photographer/writer Peter Hyatt.
The program covers Murcutt's battles with councils, standout work and overview by major commentators.
Through adversity he triumphs, winning the Alvar Aalto medal in 1992.
It includes his childhood in Papua New Guinea, the Marie Short/Glenn Murcutt Kempsey Farmhouse, Mt.Wilson House, Ken Done House, Binji Point House NSW, Raheen Melbourne and Yirrkala NT.
His philosophy of touching the earth lightly provides an environmental reference well before it became commonplace.
