In an age of the 'temporary city', as Peter Bishop would call it, short-lived and interim uses are gaining much attention around the world. In some cases celebrated, in others criticized, these uses often intersect with the public, inviting them to an urban discussion in a way traditional design fails to achieve.
A commission by the Naomi Milgrom Foundation in Melbourne explores this trend and brings Architecture (and everything it encompasses) to the public sphere.
The inaugural exhibition and design of MPavilion will be designed by Australian architect, Sean Godsell and located in the Queen Victoria Gardens, Melbourne. "A unique architecture commission and design event for Melbourne, MPavilion is a new kind of clubhouse – an intriguing form, a meeting place, a temporary landmark, a spontaneous detour, a starting point." - says the MPavilion Website.
