MMeets—Murcutt Unbuilt VR Tour

Sat 23 Nov 2019, 1pm—3pm

Did you know that a number of Glenn Murcutt AO’s designed projects have never—or not yet—been realised? Even so, thanks to Virtual Reality (VR) technology, you can now experience some of them in digitally rendered form—as close to finalised as they’ll get, at least for now. By this process, with Glenn’s full support and assistance, Sydney-based Sissons Architects are bringing two of his projects to life in extraordinary detail: the Donaldson House in Somers, Victoria, and a private house in Mount White, New South Wales.

Join us in welcoming Nick Sissons, director and founder of Sissons Architects, whose multimedia presentation of this venture will explain the digital processes he and his team are using to recreate these projects, as well as Glenn’s approaches in conceiving them. Nick will also guide a virtual tour of each house. All are encouraged to drop in, find shade under Glenn’s Pavilion and, alongside Nick, explore the ways in which these houses exhibit Glenn’s much-acclaimed response to site, climate and client specification. Then, as the presentation wraps up, you’ll be able to don a VR headset and explore the houses for yourself!
