for the second year of the MPavilion in melbourne, british architect amanda levete has been commissioned by the naomi milgrom foundation to create the new temporary pavilion that will sit in the city’s queen victoria gardens. attracting visitors to meander underneath, the form of the installation will take shape as a series of translucent and lightweight ‘petals’ acting as a canopy against the sun while swaying gently against the wind. subsequently, the pavilion will naturally become a catalyst for social gatherings, hosting workshops, events and evolve into a dynamic landmark within melbourne.
