Murcutt's architecture is of eloquent form and refined detailing, but is primarily concerned with bringing the qualities of the surrounding natural world into the daily experience of the occupants. This approach, which aims to create an architecture that 'touches the earth lightly', has led to widespread critical acclaim. Thoughtfully presented, this edition examines 13 of Murcutt's works, captivatingly photographed so as to illustrate the harmony between building, landscape and nature. Accompanied by sketches, plans and a short introductory essay by the architect.
