Tuesday, 25 July 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm
B117, Basement, Melbourne School of Design

We regret to announce that Benedetta Tagliabue is no longer available to visit Melbourne due to an unexpected and unavoidable business commitment. We wish her all the best.

This July renowned architect, educator and Pritzker Prize jury member Benedetta Tagliabue will be in Melbourne for limited appearances supported by MPavilion and the Melbourne School of Design.

Her poetic architecture, always attentive to its context, has won international awards in the fields of public space and design.

Tagliabue is principal architect of Miralles Tagliabue EMBT studio (Barcelona and Shanghai). In this special MSD event Tagliabue presents her latest projects in development, such as the Naples underground central station, the Clichy-Montfermeil metro station in Paris, an office tower in Taichung Taiwan and the Zhang Daqian Museum in Neijiang China.

Tagliabue will also present her most notable projects, such the Edinburgh Parliament, Santa Caterina market and Gas Natural Fenosa building in Barcelona. Her 2010 Shanghai World Expo – Spanish Pavilion was awarded with the prestigious RIBA International ‘Best Building of 2011’ award.
