Synopsis by Alice Day
Designing houses and other buildings with respect to their environment is central to Glenn Murcutt's approach to architecture. Architecture in Profile: Touch the Earth Lightly: The Life and Work of Glenn Murcutt examines this acclaimed architect who brings a personal philosophy to his works. His determination to "touch the earth lightly" is evident in his houses, which make up a large proportion of his overall work. Many of his structures use a pavilion feature and are made of corrugated steel and glass. In this documentary, viewers can readily see Murcutt's contributions to Australian architecture.
