Kane Constructions continue to be the build partner for the Naomi Milgrom Foundation's MPavilion. 

Taking its cues from the ancient ampitheatre, MPavilion 2017 blurs the lines between inside and outside, in a skilful yet empathetic manipulation of the surrounding landscape in Melbourne’s Queen Victoria Gardens. OMA’s MPavilion design seeks not only to employ the qualities of the amphitheatre, but to build on them and bring to life a flexible space that can function as a stage, tribune or even playground.

Of the design, Rem Koolhaas and David Gianotten said: “MPavilion is a project that hopes to provoke discussion around what architecture can do both globally and in an Australian context. We’re interested in treating this pavilion not just as an architectural object, but as something that injects intensity into a city and contributes to an ever-evolving culture.”
