INVERT 2.0 MINI LIVING – BUILT BY ALL is the second collaboration between green magazine, MINI LIVING, the City of Melbourne and RMIT, in the form of an exhibition and talk series which will be presented in October 2018. This year the theme explores multi-residential design and development, a subject of increasing architectural focus in recent times and what it means to create a meaningful, sustainable living environment in the heart of Melbourne.
A selection of established and emerging Australian architects (us included) have been invited by green magazine to respond to a brief to reimagine a city block beside the Queen Victoria Market as a hypothetical urban village. This village will contain residential, community, commercial and green spaces. In a return to architectural tradition, the architects will create hand drawings of their vision for the site..
The second Australian-based MINI LIVING exhibition, will be held within the iconic 2014 MPavilion on the grounds of the Hellenic Museum in Melbourne’s CBD.
Designed by Australia’s Sean Godsell of Sean Godsell Architects, the pavilion features a steel structure with a glazed roof and fully automated outer skin. Godsell’s MPavilion is a testament to the principles of enduring design which apply to architecture in all its forms.
