Applications for the 2015 Glenn Murcutt International Master class are now being received and all those interested in attending the two-week intensive workshop have been invited to apply.

The Master Class is personally led by Glenn Murcutt and involves lectures, events and a design project that is undertaken in groups and culminates with a design presentation by participants and a critique by Murcutt and other tutors at the end of the program.

The first week is held at ‘Riversdale’ on the Shoalhaven River of NSW and participants will be housed in the Arthur and Yvonne Boyd Education Centre, one of Murcutt’s most famous projects. Subject to confirmation, participants might also expect to visit Simpson-Lee House at Mt.Wilson in the Blue Mountains as well as other projects by Richard Leplastrier and Peter Stutchbury.

Now in its 15th year, the program sees regular international attendance from architects, postgraduates and senior student from over 70 countries around the world, and equates to 150 hours high-level study at postgraduate level. 

A certificate of satisfactory completion is issued to all participants completing the program and their website notes that professional institutes and universities internationally have, over the years since its inception, accepted this event as gaining professional development or academic credit points.
