On Monday, Sean Godsell unveiled the inaugural MPavilion in Melbourne‘s Queen Victoria Gardens. Intended as an Australian counterpart to London‘s wildly successful Serpentine Gallery Pavilion, the Pavilion will be open until February 1st, hosting a series of events throughout its four-month stay including talks, workshops, film screenings and art interventions.

Funded primarily by the recently established Naomi Milgrom Foundation, with assistance and support from the Serpentine Gallery itself, the pavilion is the first step in the Naomi Milgrom Foundation’s goal to position  as “Asia-Pacific’s hub of design and architecture.” The first instalment by Godsell features a simple frame covered with automated aluminium panels, which open and close in response to the sunlight.
