184 pages CASEBOUND BOOK, by Kenneth Frampton and essays by Juhani Pallasmaa, David Malouf, Phil Harris and Liisa Naar.
For this book, Frampton joined Murcutt on a tour of his houses; at various junctures of Frampton's insightful text the reader can branch out to one of the eight folders for an in-depth exploration of each of these milestone buildings. Pallasmaa and Malouf take a more philosophical and poetic view of Murcutt's work, whilst Harris joins Murcutt in Rome for the Pritzker Prize presentation, and Naar provides a client-perspective for one of Murcutt's best known houses.
