Australian archtiect to receive Jefferson Medal

Glenn Murcutt, a major figure in world architecture who is known for his ecologically sensitive work that synthesizes elements of regional vernacular with modernist tradition, will receive the 36th annual Thomas Jefferson Medal in Architecture at the University during the Founder's Day celebration April 12. He will give a public lecture on April 11 at 2 p.m. in Old Cabell Hall.

Murcutt taught graduate studios in U.Va.'s School of Architecture as the Thomas Jefferson Visiting Professor in spring 1998. Using glass, steel and aluminum, Murcutt's designs integrate the structure with the landscape and complement the natural environment. Considered both an environmentalist and a naturalist, he has long been interested in traditional societies and his work with Australia's Aboriginal community and culture and their sense of place has been a cornerstone of his architecture.

The Jefferson Medals in Architecture and Law are sponsored jointly by the University and the Thomas Jefferson Foundation at Monticello.
