Green magazine has invited architects and RMIT students to respond to a brief for a hypothetical urban village on a prominent site adjacent to the Queen Victoria Market. The urban village brief explores the topic of urban density and multi-residential development.
The second Australian-based MINI LIVING exhibition, INVERT 2.0 MINI LIVING – BUILT BY ALL, will be held within the iconic 2014 MPavilion on the grounds of the Hellenic Museum in Melbourne’s CBD.
Designed by Australia’s Sean Godsell of Sean Godsell Architects, the pavilion features a steel structure with a glazed roof and fully automated outer skin. Godsell’s MPavilion is a testament to the principles of enduring design which apply to architecture in all its forms.
Green magazine is thrilled to share the list of participating architects, whose hand drawings are as creatively diverse as they are thought-provoking.
- Ben Callery Architects
- Breathe Architecture/Nightingale
- Chris Connell Design
- David Barr Architects
- Field Design Studio
- studio edwards
- Taylor Knights Architecture
- Topology Studio
- Woods Bagot
- Wolveridge Architects
It will be an honour to share the architects’ vision both in the exhibition and through the speaker series in October, 2018. The full speaker program is now confirmed and bookings can be made via the link below. Green magazine also announced that esteemed speakers include Jeremy McLeod (Breathe Architecture, Nightingale), Ken Maher (Australian Institute of Architects Gold Medallist, former Australian Institute of Architecture National President, current professor in the UNSW Faculty of Built Environment and an Officer of the Order of Australia (AO)), and Professor Rob Adams AM (Director of City Design at the City of Melbourne).
The progress of RMIT’s School of Architecture and Landscape Design students’ response to the brief is similarly exciting. Production on prototypes of the model has begun using RMIT’s 3D printing technology.
INVERT 2.0 MINI LIVING – BUILT BY ALL opens October 17 – 26. In the lead-up to the exhibition, green magazine has relaunched its MINI Profiles online series, this year exploring leading local and international projects to establish a dialogue around multi-res development. Each instalment can be found on green magazine’s website.
