What's On


Glenn Murcutt – Spirit of Place premiere

Glenn Murcutt – Spirit of Place explores the life and work of Australia’s most internationally recognised architect. Murcutt has long eschewed publicity and has preferred to let his work speak for itself but documentary filmmaker Catherine Hunter has been invited to join him as he embarks on his most challenging project to date – a mosque for the Newport Islamic community in Melbourne.

The NSW Chapter will be hosting the premiere screening on 2 Dec from 6pm, prior to screening nationally 6 Dec on the ABC. Secure your tickets today.
