MPavilion is Australia’s leading architecture commission, and a cultural laboratory for the community to engage and share. MPavilion is an ongoing initiative of the Naomi Milgrom Foundation and is supported by City of Melbourne, State Government of Victoria through Creative Victoria and Development Victoria, and ANZ.
Since 2014, the Naomi Milgrom Foundation has commissioned an architect to design a pavilion for the Queen Victoria Gardens, in Melbourne’s Southbank Arts Precinct. The MPavilion then becomes the focus of a free program season of cultural events and interventions, lively talks, performances, workshops, installations and kid-friendly experiences
At the close of each season, the MPavilion is gifted by the Naomi Milgrom Foundation to the people of Victoria and relocated to a new permanent home to be engaged by the community.
But in 2020, MPavilion is responding to a year of immense global and local change by unfolding in a radical new way
This year, instead of building a new structure, MPavilion 2020 will prioritise an expanded program that supports local designers and artists by reusing its six original pavilions. With the 2020 program coming to life across these pavilions’ new locations—including Docklands, Melbourne Zoo, and Monash University’s Clayton campus—Melburnians will be able to enjoy free MPavilion events in more parts of the city than ever before
The program will run from 12 November 2020 to 5 April 2021.
