Visiting & Regular Faculty
Philip Goad is a Professor of Architecture at the University of Melbourne, Australia, and director of the Melbourne School of Design. He is the author of more than ten books, including “New Directions in Tropical Asian Architecture,” “Architecture Bali,” and “New Directions in Australian Architecture.”
The tropical climate is unique in its own diverse way and it has a direct impact on the design of our built environment; thus ‘tropics’ as a topic is in the discussion of design, architecture and situated place making ever since the modernism and beyond.
It is a tribute to the Australian master architect Glenn Murcutt by Professor Philip Goad; with several beautiful examples, references, analogy and insights, leading to the fact that Murcutt is the poet of 'sections.'
