Episode 125: MPavilion 2017 - Rem Koolhaas and David Gianotten
In this episode of ArchiTel we are exploring the 2017 MPavilion. MPavilion is an initiative of the Naomi Milgrom Foundation, supported by City of Melbourne, State Government of Victoria, through Creative Victoria and ANZ. Every year the Naomi Milgrom Foundation commissions an outstanding architect to design a temporary pavilion for the Queen Victoria Gardens, in the centre of Melbourne’s Southbank Arts Precinct.
A new civic space, a cultural laboratory and an event hub, each MPavilion brings creative collaborators together to present a free, four-month-long program of talks, workshops, performances and installations, and more, from October to February. MPavilion spotlights Melbourne as the creative and design capital of Australia, and with Melbourne as a world renowned leader in liveability, MPavilion continues to foster discussion and debate about the role design, architecture and culture have in creating a city that is liveable, creative and equitable.
MPavilion 2017 is designed by OMA / Rem Koolhaas & David Gianotten. Creators of modern architectural icons, OMA is a prolific international practice of worldwide distinction and influence. MPavilion 2016 was designed by Bijoy Jain of Studio Mumbai, award-winning architect and practice of distinction based in India – its permanent home is at Melbourne Zoo.
