Glenn Murcutt was born in London in 1936 when his Australian parents were on a trip to Europe. From 1936–41 he lived in Papua New Guinea , after which he returned to Sydney with his parents. He completed his studies at the "Technical College of the University of New South Wales " from 1956–61. Murcutt has had his own architectural practice in Sydney since 1969 . In 1973 he made extensive trips to Mexico, USA and Europe. Murcutt is an architecture professor at the University of New South Wales in Sydney and is in demand as a visiting professor around the world.
In 2002 he received the Hero for the Green Century award from Time magazine (as the founder of the construction of emission-free buildings ). Glenn Murcutt deliberately only designs private houses and cultural buildings, not high-rise buildings. He also only builds in his Australian homeland.
