The Australian architects who won Pritzker Prize in 2002, Glenn Marcus Murcutt has been awarded the 2009 AIA Gold Medal based on effect of his works to the world, especially his small, elegant building.

In a letter of support for Murcutt’s nomination, 2008 AIA Gold Medal winner Renzo Piano praised the architect’s work, noting his ability to build with “simplicity and clarity” as well as “context and presence.” But the most important contribution Murcutt has made, wrote Piano, “is what I call the ethic of profession: the honest and the obstinate daily work about quality.”
