MPavilion is an event hub, a meeting place, a temporary landmark, a spontaneous detour, a starting point. Exploring the role of design in the city, we’re collaborating with thinkers, doers and makers to bring you a free four-month program of talks, workshops, performances and installations from October 2015 to February 2016. Browse our events below, and we’ll see you in the gardens.
