Melbourne-based MPavilion has joined some of the world’s most iconic museums and galleries on Google Arts & Culture, allowing the program to be showcased across the globe.
Google Arts & Culture is an online platform with the mission to make the world's cultural information accessible and available to anyone with Intenet access.
Announcing the launch of MPavilion on Google Arts & Culture, the Naomi Milgrom Foundation said that the architectural commission can now be explored online in extraordinary detail.
Founder Naomi Milgrom AO said that MPavilion aims to enhance society through the initiation and support of great design and architecture.
The collaboration with the Google Cultural Institute has resulted in the past three MPavilions being showcased on a cross-disciplinary platform that merges architecture with technology, allowing the Foundation to encourage design education and cultural exchange, and present Melbourne’s MPavilion to the world alongside the likes of the British Museum and the Guggenheim.
MPavilion on Google Arts & Culture comprises 360° Street View tours, and an exhibition of images of the MPavilions over their duration in the Queen Victoria Gardens, as well as photos and digital recordings of talks on art, design, architecture and more.
OMA Asia-Pacific partners Rem Koolhaas & David Gianotten have been commissioned to design MPavilion 2017, which will open free to the public on 3 October 2017.
Supported by major partners City of Melbourne and the Victorian State Government through Creative Victoria and the ANZ bank, MPavilion has received over 234,000 visitors since its inception in 2014.
