Images have been released of Melbourne's second annual MPavilion. Designed by British architect Amanda Levete of AL_A, the temporary structure will use the latest technology in nautical engineering to stimulate a forest-like canopy within the city’s Queen Victoria Gardens. A series of three- and five-meter wide petals made from ultra-thin translucent composite and carbon fiber will "sway" on top slender columns, mimicking the tree line to the site's east.

Beyonce's Ghost has inspired plans for a curvaceous, 226-meter-tall in Melbourne. Designed by Elenberg Fraser, the dubbed "Premier Tower" has received planning permission and will be built at 134 Spencer Street, adjacent to the Southern Cross station.

According to the architects, the mixed-use project's "complex form" was shaped by climatic restraints and after Beyonce's moving body seen in her recent music video Ghost. It is set to rise 68-stories on a stepped podium in the city's central business district. Once complete, it will house 660 apartments, a 160-room hotel, and retail space.

A new study shows that timber buildings can be up to 10-15% cheaper to construct than traditional designs in several different building types. The study, “Commercial Building Costing Case Studies – Traditional Design versus Timber Project,” was led by Andrew Dunn, chief executive of the Timber Development Association (TDA) in Australia. Part of a seminar series touring Australia, the report contains detailed designs of four building types in both timber and conventional construction, with a quantity surveyor comparing cost estimates between them. See how timber compared to conventional methods after the break.
