Glenn Murcutt - Spirit of Place explores the life and work of Australia's most internationally recognised architect. Murcutt's extraordinary reputation rests on the beauty and integrity of his buildings. Murcutt's focus throughout his career has been the creation of energy-efficient masterpieces perfectly suited to their environment and his breakthrough designs and teaching have influenced architects around the world.
Murcutt has long eschewed publicity preferring to let his work speak for itself. Despite this, he agreed to allow filmmaker Catherine Hunter to explore his most seminal buildings and follow him as he embarks on the challenging project of a mosque for the Newport Islamic community in Melbourne.
