MPavilion set to open

MPavilion set to open Image

Docklands’ newest community space is set to open this month.

Construction and installation of the Amanda Levete-designed pavilion at the corner of Harbour Esplanade and Collins St is nearing completion.

The pavilion was part of the MPavilion program, which sees architects design a temporary pavilion for the Queen Victoria Gardens.

Ms Levete’s design was the selected 2015 MPavilion and was then gifted to Docklands by the Naomi Milgrom Foundation and the City of Melbourne.

Places Victoria general manager Simon Wilson said it was envisaged MPavilion would become a popular lunch spot and be used for performances or recreation.

“Locating MPavilion 2015 in Docklands is part of our approach to provide intimate spaces for people who live and work in Docklands to gather, with other projects including the award-winning Hortus on Harbour Esplanade and the Docklands Community Garden on Geographe St,” Mr Wilson said.

“Construction and landscaping works are almost finished, with the pavilion expected to open to the public in July.”

“Further improvements to the open space between the pavilion and the Docklands Sports Court will be announced soon, which are planned to bring the community more active and passive recreation opportunities.”
