Designed by Glenn Murcutt, the 2019 @mpavilion
has been unveiled. Wanting to prioritise the view to the Yarra river and the city skyline beyond, this year's MPavilion will be a rectangular plan with steel frames to support the wing-like trusses, covered in a tensioned translucent fabric. The curved roof allows for shade and protection from the rain, and retractable fabric blinds along the south elevation provide wind protection when needed. At night, concealed LED lighting within the roof will light up the structure, much like an lantern.⠀
"The MPavilion design is a crisp white building that will be lit at night like a lantern, giving the pavilion a feeling of lightness. For me it was central to establish a sense of ‘place’ for visitors—to view from within the building, the gardens, the river, and the city.” – Glenn Murcutt AO⠀
Who else is excited for this? I know I am.
