During the 2020 season, MPavilion responded to the needs of the time by hosting events at multiple locations.
Our 2020 season is now closed, but you can still visit these locations while we gear up for the launch of our next season, in November 2021.
Please note that some locations have set opening hours, so be sure to check them before your visit.



Our Podcast Library is regularly updated with archive recordings from talks and readings from the first MPavilion season in 2014 to the present day.

It’s a place brimful of recordings so that you can visit—or revisit—a selection of our cultural events from over the years and listen in-season to the latest from MPavilion 2020.

  • Cue the excitement because MAP studio's MPavilion is starting to take shape!  🔧 Despite a few spanners in the works, namely the construction industry shutdown, @schiavelloconstruction has manufactured and fabricated the three-dimensional steel lattice structure and its mirrored panels.  After welding, painting and some trial assemblies at the factory, it's time to install it onsite (weld done team 😌)  We can't wait to reveal the program and experience hundreds of free events with you at MPavilion 2021—which kicks off online on 23 November and opens IRL from 2 December.  📷 @spacecraft___  #MPavilion2021 #MPavilion #Architecture #MAPstudio

  • 🗞️✨MPavilion 2021 in @VogueLiving!  With construction underway in the Queen Victoria Gardens, we are thrilled to see MPavilion 2021 by MAP studio (Venice) feature in the November/December issue of @VogueLiving.  Thanks to Annemarie Kiely for penning such a beautiful piece on the light of hope that is MAP studio's MPavilion 2021—aptly sitting in their Optimism issue, which is all about celebrating the positive power of design.  #MPavilion2021 #MPavilion #VogueLiving #Architecture #Melbourne #melbournearchitecture
  • 🏙️ 🗞️ The @cityofmelbourne has announced they are prioritising design with the appointment of more than 40 experts to two new design advisory bodies—and we love to see it!  We’re delighted to see so many collaborators and friends of MPavilion appointed, including Sarah Lynn Rees, Jill Garner, Rory Hyde, Tania Davidge, Martyn Hook, and Georgia Birks, to name a few...  The panels will provide formal design advice on development applications, advocacy and culture, focusing on opportunities to reassert Melbourne’s global reputation as a leading design city.  At MPavilion, we seek to champion the role of design and demonstrate Melbourne’s status as an international design leader, so we congratulate @cityofmelbourne and all those appointed on this important initiative.
