MPavilion is an initiation by the Naomi Milgrom Foundation supported by the City of Melbourne and Victorian State Government created to be a meeting place, event hub and “an invitation to experiment” says the foundation.
“Every year for four years, an outstanding architect will be commissioned to design a temporary pavilion for the Queen Victoria Gardens, in the centre of Melbourne’s Southbank Arts Precinct”.
“The 2015 MPavilion has been designed by AL_A, the studio of Stirling Prize–winning architect Amanda Levete. The 2014 MPavilion was designed by Australian firm Sean Godsell Architects, and now has a new, permanent home at Melbourne’s Hellenic Museum.”
ASH long term distributor Britton Timbers Victoria, partnered with Kane Constructions to supply the projects timber needs including 90 x 45 F17 ‘IRON ASH’ joists and 90 x 22 silvertop ash decking. IRON ASH uses innovative technology to combine a transparent combination of water based additives deep into the core of GOODWOOD Victorian Ash. The process creates a Hazard Class 3 (H3) durable alternative to treated pine.
