The Glenn Murcutt Master Class is an innovative two-week design programme held in September that has become a major annual event on the global architecture calendar.

Started in 2001 by The Architecture Foundation Australia, architects and senior students from more than 80 countries have since made the journey to Australian shores to participate in the program.

The first week is held at ‘Riversdale’, the Arthur and Yvonne Boyd Education Centre on the stunning Shoalhaven River south of Sydney. Participants live and breathe in what has been described as Glenn’s ‘Master Work’, spend time in the company of Glenn himself and experience private tours of some of his most distinguished projects.

For the second week of the Masterclass, the Eco Outdoor Waterloo showroom is transformed into a hive of architectural innovation and inspiration, as participants undertake a design project, with Glenn personally running the rule over the class. As he puts it himself:

I am talking about the conservation of materials, the conservation of land, the keeping of old growth forests, the understanding of how we might be able to find a sustainable building.

The Masterclass concludes at the end of the week with presentations of the design projects by the participants and a critique by Australia’s foremost architects, including Glenn Murcutt, Peter Stutchbury, Richard Leplastrier, Brit Andresen and Lindsay Johnston.

Eco Outdoor have long been proud to support the up and coming Australian Architectural talent and last year, Eco Outdoor ran a competition in which two final year Architecture students were given the opportunity to attend a presentation at the Masterclass and meet the participants and tutors including Glenn Murcutt.
