Three leading Melbourne-based design studios will kick off the final week of the four month long MPavilion exhibition with a live challenge in Melbourne’s Queen Victoria Gardens.

Architecture, design and property development firm Assemble, architecture studio Edwards Moore, and design collective SIBLING will design and construct structures out of the hot pink BLOOM sculptural blocks across three hours. The artists may choose to work alone or in tandem.

The BLOOM project was designed by Alisa Andrasek and Jose Sanchez of the UCL Bartlett School of Architecture, and uses game-like logic to create a collective building experience of self-evolving form.

Its bright pink components can be connected, making it structurally sound and allowing for the construction of a new landscape.

BLOOM was recently exhibited at the RMIT Design Hub as part of London Design Museum’s touring exhibition, The Future is Here.
