Glenn Murcutt on his completed design for MPavilion 2019

“The idea of design, that whole process of visualising and bringing everything down to an absolutely simple level… down to every detail.” – Glenn Murcutt

Discover where Glenn Murcutt, Australia’s preeminent architect, drew inspiration for the design of the new MPavilion. We sat down with Glenn on-site in the Queen Victoria Gardens and spoke about his thought processes for what defines a pavilion, and eventually informed the final lantern-like design of the 2019 Pavilion. Glenn is well known for his simple and elegant design solutions, always considering sustainability and site orientation – it was no different when designing this new meeting place that will house open air concerts, talks, exhibtions, and even fashion shows.
