His designs (mostly) age with grace I purchased this book when it was released in the mid 1980s from the Queensland Art Gallery bookshop and it is still on my coffee table today.

Foreword by Glenn Murcutt. This has led to Inappropriate European cultural values on a very different, very harsh, southern continent. This has led to a desperate need for an open, independant architecture. That need is answered by Glen Murcutt, and his development of a strong and attractive, yet practical, architectural form.

Some seventeen years ago, in the foreword to a book by Philip Drew, titled Leaves of Iron and sub-titled Glenn Murcutt: Pioneer of an Australian Architectural Form, Murcutt wrote: Landscape in Australia is remarkable. I have learned much from scrutinising the land and its flora. Murcutt has developed forms of slatted timber and metal screens for sun control which also achieve privacy yet maintain the movement of air. He also uses slats set at particular angles as screens above glass not only as sun control, allowing the entry of winter sunlight and excluding it in the summer, but also to allow for the appreciation of the sky from within the house day and night and seasonally.

This brief reflection of family history further explains some of the influences that have shaped his work. His father, Arthur Murcutt was born in Melbourne in 1899.

‘Leaves of Iron : Glenn Murcutt, pioneer of an Australian architectural form’, by Philip Drew, Collins and Angus and Robertson, Sydney (1991).

Australia's search for its identity has often led to the imposition of inappropriate European cultural values on a very different landscape. In architecture, the error of implanting old-world styles in this new world has led to a desperate need for an independent architecture. That need is answered by Glenn Murcutt, and his development of a strong and attractive, yet practical, architectural form. He has achieved this through a close scrutiny of Australian landscape and climate. This book looks at Murcutt's planned and built work and the importance of that work to architecture and culture in general.
