For 2014, Melbourne Festival joins with the Naomi Milgrom Foundation to introduce a vibrant new feature to Melbourne’s skyline. MPavilion is a unique collision of architectural design, art and performance space: an intriguing new structure to serve as a meeting place, a spontaneous detour, a destination or a starting point.

MPavilion is an ongoing project, featuring a new design by a different architect each year. The 2014 iteration comes from acclaimed Melbourne architect Sean Godsell, the brains behind the award-winning RMIT Design Hub. Inspired by Australia’s iconic outback sheds and verandas, the structure responds to sunlight – unfolding each morning like a flower welcoming the people of Melbourne.

Playing host to an engaging program of free performances and talks, MPavilion promises to be a wondrous, ephemeral addition to our city’s landscape.
