After the success of Glen Murcutt’s 2019 pavilion, AECOM is proud to be a partner for the 2nd time to provide engineering services for MPavilion 2021. MPavilion is Australia’s leading architecture commission and community-focused structure, temporarily located from December through to April, in Melbourne’s Queen Victoria Gardens.

The Naomi Milgrom Foundation recently announced this years’ architecture practice: Venice-based Francesco Magnani and Traudy Pelzel of Italian architecture practice MAP Studio.

The studio, even though it has built few works outside its home country of Italy, is prolific, focusing on a sensitive approach to historical architecture, restoration and urbanism, while maintaining a sharp, contemporary approach and aesthetic.

Each year since 2014, the Naomi Milgrom Foundation – supporter of arts, design and architecture, has commissioned an architect to design a pavilion to become the focus of a free summer program of events promoting design awareness. At the end of each season, the MPavilion is gifted to the people of Victoria and relocated to a new permanent home for community access.

AECOM shares the Naomi Milgrom Foundation passion for the importance that architecture and design plays in our community.  Our involvement with MPavilion also showcases our ability to work at all scales, and to collaborate with the best designers in the world to create innovative, elegant and inspiring structures.


As MPavilion partner we provide structural, facades and fire engineering services and advice to the design team.
