MPavilion 2016 is part of an international movement in handmade architecture and uses 7km of bamboo, 50t of stone and 26km of rope to create an extraordinary 16.8m square summer pavilion for Melbourne.
The MPavilion is an annual architecture commission and design event conceived and created by the Naomi Milgrom Foundation. Every year, a new temporary summer pavilion designed by a leading international architect, is erected in Melbourne’s historic Queen Victoria Gardens. From October through February, the MPavilion becomes a ‘cultural laboratory’ and home to a series of talks, workshops, performances and installations. It is then moved to a permanent new home within Melbourne’s CBD, creating an ongoing legacy in Melbourne’s increasingly sophisticated architectural landscape.
