INVERT 2.0 MINI LIVING – BUILT BY ALL opens October 17 – 26. A series of talks will be held from 22 – 25 October at the exhibition site featuring figures from the architectural community and RMIT students.
The talks are free, but bookings are essential. Find more information here.
Green magazine has invited architects and RMIT students to respond to a brief for a hypothetical urban village on a prominent site adjacent to the Queen Victoria Market. The urban village brief explores the topic of urban density and multi-residential development.
The second Australian-based MINI LIVING exhibition, INVERT 2.0 MINI LIVING – BUILT BY ALL, will be held within the iconic 2014 MPavilion on the grounds of the Hellenic Museum in Melbourne’s CBD. Designed by Australia’s Sean Godsell of Sean Godsell Architects, the pavilion features a steel structure with a glazed roof and fully automated outer skin.
Godsell’s MPavilion is a testament to the principles of enduring design which apply to architecture in all its forms. Green magazine is thrilled to share the list of participating architects, whose hand drawings are as creatively diverse as they are thought-provoking.

About MINI LIVING.
MINI LIVING is an initiative first launched by MINI in 2016 with the aim of devising creative architectural solutions for the urban lifestyles of the future. At this year’s Salone del Mobile in Milan (17 – 22 April), MINI joined forces with London-based architects Studiomama to present MINI LIVING – BUILT BY ALL. This new installation reveals a visionary living concept brought to life in a close collaboration between residents and architects. A surface area of just a few square metres was used to create very personal and attractive spaces, reflecting MINI’s core principle of the “creative use of space”. BUILT BY ALL was the third installation presented by MINI at Milan Design Week to highlight aspects of MINI LIVING. MINI LIVING had already exhibited visionary concepts for shared and collaborative living/working in our cities in Milan over recent years with its MINI LIVING – BREATHE and MINI LIVING – Do Disturb installations. The first habitable MINI LIVING project will open its doors in Shanghai in 2019. Here, an innovative space-related concept for living and working is taking shape in converted industrial buildings on a surface area of just under 8000 square metres. INVERT 2.0 MINI LIVING – BUILT BY ALL is the second MINI LIVING x green magazine installation to be presented in Melbourne. Last year, the inaugural installation focused on the importance of sustainable, small-scale architecture and was met with much success and interest from both the design community and the general public.
