In a message sent to Australian Institute of Architects members last Friday, National President Elect Brian Zulaikha described Murcutt as a “very active and passionate supporter of the Institute and the profession, as well as being a very talented designer.”

Murcutt’s service was held on Monday 21 March in Sydney’s Elizabeth Bay. In lieu of flowers, the family asked for contributions to be made to the Alice and Otto Trust, set up for Murcutt’s children by some of his closest colleagues.
