Monash Art, Design and Architecture students reinterpret Melbourne’s buildings

Students from Monash University’s Art, Design and Architecture school (MADA) have transformed Melbourne’s iconic buildings into wearable art.

The student’s work was on display for just one evening in the MPavilion* in central Melbourne, but you can see their wearable interpretations next to the buildings that inspired them in the photos on the de de ce blog.

The project is a collaboration between MADA, the architects of the buildings, artist Callum Morton, fashion designer Miriam Borcherdt and architect Cate Hall.  Students were encouraged to dissect the language of the buildings into a human scale, exploring the way they can react to human movement.

Melbourne’s iconic buildings represented include Swanston Academic Building at RMIT University, Federation Square and Melbourne Museum.

You can find out more about studying at Monash University here, or ask one of the Study Options team about Art, Design or Architecture courses in Australia.

 * MPavilion is a temporary pavilion in Queen Victoria Park, Melbourne. Similar to the Serpentine Pavilion, which is built each year in Hyde Park by a different architect, the MPavilion is open until the 1st February 2015.
