MPavilion: Encounters with Design and Architecture

MPavilion: Encounters with Design and Architecture marks the completion of six remarkable years and is a celebration of what MPavilion has collectively achieved.

Published by Thames & Hudson Australia in collaboration with the Naomi Milgrom Foundation, MPavilion: Encounters with Design and Architecture is the first publication on the MPavilion project and chronicles the first six remarkable years. A celebration of what MPavilion has collectively achieved, this volume captures the incredible contributions of each of the MPavilion architects from 2014 to 2019; Sean Godsell, Amanda Levete, Bijoy Jain, Rem Koolhaas, David Gianotten, Carme Pinós, and Glenn Murcutt, and celebrates the hundreds of collaborators who have made MPavilion a local and global design icon.

Exploring how each architect addressed the design of MPavilion, the book reflects a growing and much needed broader conversation about design today, and investigates the critical use of pavilions, parks, and public spaces in creating healthier cities and communities.

‘Architecture is a service to society; it changes people’s lives and makes society possible. That’s why I liked Naomi Milgrom’s MPavilion project— it’s social, and it’s for the citizens to use. We need to find a new language and that time has come. It’s time for free and flexible architecture.’—Carme Pinós, Founder, Estudio Carme Pinós

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
