The Naomi Milgrom Foundation has announced its sixth architect for MPavilion 2019 – Glenn Murcutt.
February 18th, 2019
Going into its sixth iteration, MPavilion, presented by the Naomi Milgrom Foundation, has today announced its next designer will be Australian architect Glenn Murcutt. A preeminent local architect, Murcutt is the only Australian to have been awarded the highly coveted Pritzker Architecture Prize.
On announcing the latest architect for the ongoing temporary pavilion program, Naomi Milgrom says, “I’m thrilled to be working with Glenn Murcutt. He’s been at the forefront of contemporary architecture for decades with groundbreaking designs that are sensitive to landscape and cross-cultural collaboration.
“Quintessentially Australian and ahead of his time, Glenn’s thoughtfulness about people, placemaking and the environment continues to inspire us all.”
Throughout his illustrious career, Murcutt has remained humble, continuing to build upon a philosophy to ‘tough the earth lightly’. This approach has brought him international recognition for his environmentally sensitive, distinctly Australian architecture. In addition to the Pritzker, Murcutt has received the Alvar Aalto Medal, the Australian Institute of Architects and the American Institute of Architects Gold Medals and is highly regarded as a teacher and commentator.
“It’s extraordinary what Naomi has achieved with MPavilion. She’s one of the great people in this country for supporting the arts, and more than just art but architecture, with a special understanding of city life. MPavilion is an interesting and assiduous project, and I’m honoured to be commissioned,” shares Murcutt.
The news of the latest announcement comes a day after the 2018 MPavilion closed. Each year the programming, events and attendance continue to grow, with such a revered architect taking the reins, MPavilion 2019/2020 is set to be even bigger.
