In celebrating the upcoming book release MPavilion: Encounters with Design and Architecture, MPavilion has partnered with Dezeen’s Virtual Design Festival to present “MPavilion Day.” The takeover will feature guests from around the world, who will discuss the power of design to shape cities, societies and people, and consider what it means to create in the face of a global pandemic. 

With speakers Stephen Todd, Julia Peyton-Jones, Naomi Milgrom, the series of conversations will also include the legendary architects MPavilion commissioned to create the last six MPavilions; Sean Godsell, Amanda Levete, Bijoy Jain, Rem Koolhaas, David Gianotten, Carme Pinós and Glenn Murcutt.

Topics on Thursday, June 25, will range from public space, to designing for the future. These conversations between giants of architecture, design and culture will give vital windows into the minds of some of the world’s best thinkers.

When: Thursday, June 25, 10am UK time

About MPavilion: Encounters with Design and Architecture

About MPavilion 2020
MPavilion is Australia’s leading architecture commission, and a cultural laboratory for the community to engage and share. Every year since 2014 the Naomi Milgrom Foundation commissions an outstanding architect to design a pavilion in the centre of Melbourne’s Southbank Arts Precinct. With over 400 free events every summer, MPavilion spotlights Melbourne as the creative and design capital of Australia, fostering discussion and debate about the role design, architecture and culture have in creating cities that are liveable, creative and equitable.

This year, instead of building a new pavilion, MPavilion 2020 will engage its original six MPavilions and prioritise an expanded program supporting local designers and artists. With more funding than ever going directly to creators, the Naomi Milgrom Foundation is commissioning people from all works of life to create, debate and share their knowledge. Expanding the program outside of the Queen Victoria Gardens, Melburnians will be able to enjoy free events popping up across the city at the past six pavilions, from the inner city Docklands, to the Melbourne Zoo, and Monash University campus in Clayton.
