‘And as he drew, it struck him. Past and present were coalescing. The pavilion he was drawing was resembling an aircraft wing. The platform was like a tablecloth laid on grass, only transported to Queen Victoria Gardens’. Thanks to Ray Edgar, @theageaustralia for his beautifully poignant write-up of Glenn Murcutt and his design for MPavilion 2019. Read the full story in The Age.

Big news! We couldn’t be more excited to unveil MPavilion 2019 — this year designed by Australia’s only Pritzker Architecture Prize laureate, Glenn Murcutt AO. The refined, minimal design reflects Murcutt’s significant contribution to climate-responsive architecture. Commenting on his MPavilion design, Glenn Murcutt AO said: “The MPavilion design is a crisp white building that will be lit at night like a lantern, giving the pavilion a feeling of lightness. For me it was central to establish a sense of ‘place’ for visitors—to view from within the building, the gardens, the river, and the city.” MPavilion by Glenn Murcutt AO opens in the Queen Victoria Gardens, Melbourne on November 14, 2019. . #MPavilion2019 #GlennMurcutt .
