The Marika-Alderton house is an undisputed masterpiece within Glenn Murcutt’s work. The compositional, formal and constructive solutions used by the Australian architect make it the ideal case study for a broader analysis of the relationships between tectonics and architectural design. The Marika-Alderton house offers an opportunity to grasp the validity and resistance in time of the compositional and constructive principles indicated by Marc-Antoine Laugier in his An Essay on Architecture and proves the ongoing success of the archetype of the primitive hut removed from any space-time factors.
