One of world's leading architects Amanda Levete to design second annual MPavilion

Award-winning British architect Amanda Levete of London-based studio AL_A will design the second annual MPavilion, to be presented free to the public from 6 October 2015 until 7 February 2016 in Melbourne’s Queen Victoria Gardens. Amanda Levete has created a practice widely regarded as laying down the agenda for architecture in the twenty-first century.  Projects include the highly anticipated expansion of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the Stirling Prize-winning Media Centre at Lord’s Cricket Ground and Comme des Garcons stores in New York, Paris and Tokyo. 

Amanda Levete commented: "The brief from the Naomi Milgrom Foundation is a great opportunity to design a structure that responds to its climate and landscape. I’m interested in exploiting the temporary nature of the pavilion form to produce a design that speaks in response to the weather. Rooting the pavilion in its parkland setting, I am seeking to create the sensation of a forest canopy in the heart of the city that gives shelter to a program of events.”
