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.
Each year since 2014, the Naomi Milgrom Foundation has commissioned an outstanding architect to design a pavilion for the Queen Victoria Gardens, in the centre of 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.
In 2019, MPavilion welcomes influential Australian architect Glenn Murcutt AO as our esteemed designer. Often referenced as Australia’s most famous architect, Glenn is the only Australian recipient of the Pritzker Architecture Prize (2002), and is internationally recognised for environmentally sensitive and responsible designs with a distinctive Australian character.
