Often referenced as Australia’s most famous architect, Glenn is the only Australian recipient of the Pritzker Architecture Prize (2002), and is internationally recognised for environmentally sensitive and responsible designs with a distinctive Australian character. Celebrating the fiftieth year of Glenn’s globally influential design practice, MPavilion 2019 will be a milestone summer attraction in the Queen Victoria Gardens.
bluebottle is delighted to have worked with Glenn on lighting the 2019 MPavilion, supplying Intralux Cog 2.0 tunable white fixtures in partnership with JSB Lighting to realise Glenn’s vision as he describes it: ‘I felt a crisp white building, that at night could be lit from within its roof – like a lantern in the Queen Victoria Gardens, would give the pavilion a feeling of lightness. It felt appropriate for this location.’
MPavilion 2019 commissioned by the Naomi Milgrom Foundation is another of his carefully considered buildings, touching the earth lightly and making a place for community engagement and sharing of ideas.
