NEW BOOKS : GLENN MURCUTT AND GREEN HOUSE
Two new books recently published took our interest:
Glenn Murcutt : Architect
This is a Glenn Murcutt opus comprising the impressive book of 7kg and 8 folders on specific projects. Only 1000 have been issued, it is printed on archive quality paper and spans his career to date. This is bound to be the ultimate Glenn Murcutt collectable.
The Green House
New Directions in Sustainable Architecture
The Green House has a mixture of Architects from Australia and around the world. The main thrust of the book is in recognising that different climates exist and that green design needs to take this into account. The book is broken down into waterfront, forest and mountain, tropical, desert, suburban, and urban; there is also a section on mobile dwellings. A book aside from the usual coffee table lot who pass themselves of as being "green".
