Glenn Murcutt is an internationally acclaimed Australian architect who for five years taught a series of master studios for graduate architecture students at the University of Washington. This book combines examples of the students' studio work with edited transcripts of Murcutt's public lectures and sessions with students, professionals, and Finnish architect Juhani Pallasmaa to produce a multifaceted portrait of Glenn Murcutt as a teacher. Essays set the studios in the context of an inquiry into the local practice of a global architecture.

The studio work shows an application, in the Northwest environment, of Murcutt's fundamental principles. These projects often present architecture that has a precise engagement with local conditions and the natural environment. The collected studio work shows a full progression from site sketches through detail development, in drawings and models.
