VIC Celebrity Lawn Series

VIC Celebrity Lawn Series
Come and hear the different perspectives from the people involved in this intriguing relocation project - landscape architect, client and turf supplier!

Celebrity Lawn Series is a new CPD series which includes a site visit and informative, educational talk. The event will be held at MPavilion Docklands (Corner of Collins Street and Harbour Esplanade in Docklands) which has undergone a recent transformation designed by Melbourne landscape architecture firm MALA. This project involved the relocation of Amanda Levete Architects‘ 2015 MPavilion, from Queen Victoria Gardens. 

Over 500m2 of turf was also required for this project and was supplied by Lawn Solutions Australia member Lilydale Instant Lawn, with a fascinating story to accompany it.
