‘Unfolding the Park’ is a guided walk through the landscape surrounding MPavilion. Speakers from varied disciplines (art, literature, science, the built environment) will choose a plant species or built intervention within the parklands to act as a vector from which they will trace-back or speculate-forward. These short vignettes will make visible the non-linear history — partial and disjointed — of this site.

Generated discussions will include the intersection of climate resilience paradigms and heritage concerns within living landscapes; planting for climate refugia; a reflection on ways in which design disciplines may be complicit in the overdetermination of public space. Through these layered and lightly overlapping discussions the many histories, potentialities and subjectivities that shape our experience of place will be revealed.
