The first week is held at ‘Riversdale’, the Arthur and Yvonne Boyd Education Centre on the awesomely beautiful Shoalhaven River south of Sydney. Participants live in what has been described as Glenn’s ‘Master Work’, spend time there with Glenn Murcutt, and experience private visits to some of his famous houses. The second week in 2014 will be held, as in previous years, in heritage building in Sydney. Glenn personally leads the Master Class, stays at ‘Riversdale’ with the participants and tutors all groups.

You also meet other outstanding Australian architects Brit Andresen and Richard Leplastrier both, with Glenn Murcutt, Gold Medallists of the Australian Institute of Architects, award winning a widely published Peter Stutchbury, and master class convener Lindsay Johnston, former Dean of Architecture at the University of Newcastle, Australia. Walk the rugged landscape with Glenn and Aboriginal Elder Uncle Max Dulumunmun Harrison and gain insights into ‘touching this Earth lightly’.

Subject to confirmation, the program will include excursions with Glenn Murcutt to see houses such as the Simpson-Lee House at Mt.Wilson in the Blue Mountains. There will also be visits to see some very special houses by Richard Leplastrier and Peter Stutchbury. Details are yet to be finalised and are dependent on client consent to get access to these properties.

The intensive two-week design studio program involves a design project undertaken in groups and culminating, at the end of week two, with a design presentation by participants and a critique by Glenn Murcutt and the other tutors. The studio program, associated lectures and supporting events equate to 150 hours high-level study at postgraduate level. The spirit of the event is that participation is the focus and there is no formal assessment. A certificate of satisfactory completion will be issued to all participants completing the program. Professional institutes and universities internationally have, over the years since its inception, accepted this event as gaining professional development or academic credit points.

As there are only 32 places available applications are assessed on credentials and merit, with preference to early applicants.
