MADA presents: Wearing the Private City

MADA presents: Wearing the Private City


In a follow-up to last year’s highly successful ‘Wearing the Interior City‘ competition, Monash University Art Design and Architecture’s (MADA) annual event is back in 2016.

Last year, ‘Wearing the Interior City’ focused on interiors such as St Paul’s Cathedral, NGV Great Hall and Baker D. Chirico, however this year, a new group of MADA students will take on a slightly different theme, ‘Wearing the Private City’.

From the modernist innovation of Robin Boyd’s Walsh Street house to the playful, boutique sparkle of Cassandra Fahey’s Smith Great Aussie Home, the task is to translate acclaimed local houses by Australian architects into wearable forms.

The up-and-coming architects and designers will unveil unique works inspired by seven iconic Melbourne homes at MPavilion on Saturday 12 November.

The final pieces will be judged on the night by a panel including Callum Morton, artist and MADA’s Head of Fine Art, Naomi Milgrom AO, founder of MPavillion and Martin Foley MP, Minister for Creative Industries.
