Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
MPavilion is an innovative civic space, a cultural laboratory for the community to engage and share, and a bold architecture commission for Australia. In 2018, the fifth MPavilion in an ongoing series is designed by influential Barcelona-based architect and educator Carme Pinós of Estudio Carme Pinós. Celebrated internationally for her interests in urban liveability and inclusivity, as well as experimentation and poetic, experiential design, Carme is the first Spanish female architect to design a public work in Australia. Read more about Carme and her distinguished work.
