MPavilion is a unique experiment in public space, for which the Naomi Milgrom Foundation each year commissions a world-leading architect to design a temporary garden pavilion in Melbourne.
MPavilion 2018 is designed by Barcelona-based architect Carme Pinós of Estudio Carme Pinós and is the first public commission by a female Spanish architect in Australia.
Carme Pinós is one of the world’s leading architectural voices, with projects spanning public architecture, social housing, urban refurbishment and furniture and object design. Valuing an experiential body of work over heroic signature buildings, Pinós has an architectural influence visible beyond Spain through celebrated projects in Europe, Asia and the Americas.
Establishing a relationship with the Queen Victoria Gardens and the cityscape beyond, MPavilion 2018 invites a sensorial experience of connection, with nature and with each other.
Full program of events announced in September.
