The 2017 Glenn Murcutt International Master Class is an innovative two-week design studio programme held in July and has become a major annual event on the global architecture calendar.

The first week is held at ‘Riversdale’, the Arthur and Yvonne Boyd Education Centre on the stunning Shoalhaven River south of Sydney. Participants live and breathe in what has been described as Glenn’s ‘Master Work’, spend time in the company of Glenn himself and experience private tours of some of his most distinguished projects.

For the second week of the Masterclass, the Eco Outdoor Waterloo showroom is transformed into a hive of architectural innovation and inspiration, as participants undertake a design project, with Glenn personally running the rule over the class.
