MPavilion- The 2015 Edition.

Last Monday evening saw a gathering of eager deign enthusiasts on the Queen Victoria Gardens on St Kilda Road, to witness the official launch of the 2015 edition of the MPavilion designed by British architect, Amanda Levete from AL_A.UK.  This seasons pavilion sees an elegant forest of slender carbon fibre supports holding a myriad of trilobal petals to the sky, with a beautifully designed wooden floor underfoot.
With a wonderful welcome to country address along with a specially commissioned song by Aboriginal chanteuse, Deborah Cheetham it was a delightful event on a warm Melbourne Spring evening.

The MPavilion, bought to the City of Melbourne through the wonderful generosity of the Naomi Milgrom Foundation, will delight many a Melburnian or Victorian visitor until Feburary 7th, 2016, with a series of exciting events planned for its four month season.
