MPavilion is a unique architecture commission and design event for Melbourne, initiated by the Naomi Milgrom Foundation with support from City of Melbourne and the Victorian State Government.

Each year for the next four years an outstanding architect will be commissioned to design a temporary pavilion for the Queen Victoria Gardens, in the centre of the vibrant Southbank Arts Precinct.

The 2014 MPavilion has been designed by Australian architect Sean Godsell. It's a new kind of clubhouse—a meeting place and a starting point from which to explore a free four-month program of talks, workshops, performances and installations from October to February.

Free admission!

Open every day except New Years Day
7 October 2014 – 1 February 2015

Everyday Coffee Kiosk

The Everyday Coffee Kiosk at MPavilion is a satellite iteration of Collingwood’s Everyday Coffee. It will offer a rotating menu from Melbourne’s, Australia’s and the World’s finest coffee roasters, along with carefully selected cakes, pastries and snacks from local artisan bakers and patissierres.


MPavilion is located in the Queen Victoria Gardens, opposite the Arts Centre on St Kilda Road, Melbourne.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yalukit Wilum as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yalukit Wilum 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 Yalukit Wilum 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.
