weekend retreat

Glenn Murcutt
The Marie Short House
NSW Australia

Glenn Murcutt's architecture
touches the ground so lightly

Murcutt reads the Australian
landscape, climate and native culture
with such great thought and innovation.
I love how his modernist forms derive from the
native woolsheds in rural New South Wales
Above, The Marie Short House was constructed
with found / recycled materials and topped with a
simple corrugated roof.

But my favorite has to be the
home he built for an aboriginal artist
