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.

  • ⁣“Architecture touches on so many different aspects of what it is to be human. It’s culture and aesthetics obviously, but it’s also politics, economics, urban planning and history... It’s helping us find our place in the world with a future that is very uncertain. It is so important not to lose confidence in what that future could be.”⠀— Amanda Levete, architect of MPavilion 2015. ⠀  Step into the innovative and optimistic mind of MPavilion 2015 architect and 2018 RIBA Stirling Prize winner, Amanda Levete.⠀⠀  Speaking recently with the @financialtimes, Levete reflects on the uncertainty of our times, and how recent scientific explorations have given her a newfound optimism for building a better future by living better with nature, now.⠀  Click link in bio to read the article 👉🗞️  📸 Timothy Burgess & @johngollings

  • "My practice focuses on upcycling by utilising old garments, found waste and fabrics salvaged from landfill to create both functional fashion and wearable art." - Chelsea Hickman, Designer of MPavilion 2020's staff uniforms @fashionchelsea 
Fashion, design, and sustainable practice? Yes, please! 🙋 🙌 
Meditating on the ideas of ‘re-emergence’, ‘re-animation’ and ‘re-use’ throughout our 2020 program, we're proud to commission renegade fashion designer Chelsea Hickman to create the next line of MPavilion staff uniforms from the upcycled textiles of seasons past.

  • "For MPavilion and the Naomi Milgrom Foundation, supporting local design and manufacturing now is more important than ever before." - Naomi Milgrom AC, founder of the @nmf_au  We're proud to announce the commission of great design that keeps us connected.  In collaboration with @melbfringe's furniture program, The Naomi Milgrom Foundation is proud to commission 'STOOL DOLLY' by local interior designer and architect Holly Board in partnership with Peter Grove both of @boardgrove Architects.  With a design reminiscent of children's paper dolls— where folded paper is cut into a simple human form, before becoming a train of people connected by their stretched-out arms— each plywood STOOL DOLLY will safely keep us apart, together.
