Glenn Murcutt AO is often referred to as Australia's most famous architect.

MELBOURNE.- The Naomi Milgrom Foundation today announced the commission for the sixth annual MPavilion has been awarded to Pritzker Prize-winning Australian architect Glenn Murcutt AO. The announcement comes as MPavilion 2018, designed by Barcelona’s Carme Pinós of Estudio Carme Pinós closed on Sunday 17 February, having received an overwhelming public response with 133,000+ visitors and 520 free events over 139 days.

Naomi Milgrom AO, founder of the Naomi Milgrom Foundation commented: “I’m thrilled to be working with Glenn Murcutt. He’s been at the forefront of contemporary architecture for decades with groundbreaking designs that are sensitive to landscape and cross-cultural collaboration.

“Quintessentially Australian and ahead of his time, Glenn’s thoughtfulness about people, place making and the environment continues to inspire us all.”

Glenn Murcutt, commented on his commission for MPavilion 2019: “It’s extraordinary what Naomi has achieved with MPavilion. She’s one of the great people in this country for supporting the arts, and more than just art but architecture, with a special understanding of city life.
