    Draped in design: 11 iconic Melbourne interiors imagined as clothing

    Nathan Johnson

    Students from Monash University Art, Design and Architecture (MADA) faculty will unveil 11 unique works inspired by iconic Melbourne interiors at MPavilion on Saturday 14 November 2015. 

    ‘Wearing the City’ is the second MPavilion project from MADA and follows the success of their 2014 MPavilion exhibit which focused on iconic Melbourne exteriors. In 2015, MADA will reveal wearable architecture inspired by 11 historic and contemporary interiors, including the NGV Great Hall, St Paul’s Cathedral, Shrine of Remembrance additions, and NAB Docklands.

    This year, MADA lecturers, Miriam Borcherdt and Cate Hall encouraged the group of architecture and fine art students to work with the architects to translate the interiors into wearable forms, developing their own interpretations of the buildings.

    “The students have developed interesting responses to the interiors with their proposed designs,” says Borcherdt.

    “The project engages with architectural form at the scale of the body and provides interdisciplinary challenges.

    She also says that the project gave the students an opportunity to investigate the different uses of materials in creating form and delivering function.  

    “The students have been experimenting with a range of both rigid and pliable materials that consider scale, proportion, and the body’s movement,” she explains.

    Naomi Milgrom AO of Naomi Milgrom Foundation said: “We are delighted to be hosting once again the popular Monash University Art, Design and Architecture student’s Wearing the City event at MPavilion. The event is a fantastic showcase for celebrating the imaginative design minds of Melbourne’s next generation of architects and designers.”

    The designs will be exhibited at MPavilion on Saturday 14 November from 5pm-7pm, and will be judged by a panel from various disciplines, with a winner announced that night.
