Green magazine is delighted to announce that Invert 2.0 Mini Living: Built by All is officially open to the public. The exhibition – developed in collaboration with Mini Living and with support from the City of Melbourne and RMIT – is ready to welcome visitors on location at the 2014 MPavilion in the gardens of the Hellenic Museum at 280 William St, Melbourne.
Inspired by evolving global and local conversations about urban density and multi-residential development, Invert 2.0 Mini Living: Built by All will explore what it means to create a meaningful, sustainable living environment in the heart of Melbourne.
Earlier this year, a brief was issued to selected architects and RMIT students: to reimagine a city block beside the Queen Victoria Market as a hypothetical urban village containing residential, community, commercial and green spaces.
The architects submitted their responses in the form of hand drawings that are now enlarged, hung and displayed in the exhibition space. Also on display are three highly detailed and thought-provoking 1:50 scale models created by RMIT Masters of Architecture and Masters of Landscape Architecture students.
Green magazine is honoured to showcase the talent and artistry of both architects and students which combine to challenge existing and invent new forms of multi-res living.
To further delve inside the designs, a talk series will be held 22 – 25 October at the exhibition space. The talks are free, but bookings are essential. View the full program here.
Editor of green magazine, Tamsin O'Neill is pleased to see the exhibition come to fruition. "We are delighted by the response and effort from both architects and RMIT students. The ideas generated through collaboration are both clever and visionary."
Invert 2.0 Mini Living: Built by All is open October 17 – 26 from 10am – 4pm each day at 280 William St, Melbourne, VIC 3000. Entry is FREE.
