MPavilion 2017

1st May, 2017

Following three successful years delivering pavilions commissioned by the Naomi Milgrom Foundation, Kane have been selected to deliver the 2017 MPavilion project. 

The fourth MPavilion will be designed by Netherlands–based Architects Rem Koolhaas and David Gianotten (left) of OMA (Office for Metropolitan Architecture).

A creator of modern architectural icons, OMA is a prolific international practice of worldwide distinction and influence and creates both architectural and cultural projects. Their inspiring, cutting-edge works are many, including: Netherlands Embassy, Berlin; Waterfront City, Dubai; China Central TV Headquarters, Beijing; the Qatar Foundation Headquarters in Doha; Faena District in Miami; De Rotterdam and the Shenzhen Stock Exchange.  

Rem Koolhaas and David Gianotten have written:

“The Naomi Milgrom Foundation’s MPavilion is now a project of international significance and we look forward to contributing to the architectural legacy it has engendered. We are excited by the brief of designing a cultural heart for the city - a space of public engagement that will spark creativity and discussion, and that will act as a theatre for ideas.”

The MPavilion 2014 project was delivered by Melbourne based Sean Godsell Architects, the 2015 project by British Architect Amanda Levete Architects and the 2016 project designed by Indian Architect Bijoy Jain of Studio Mumbai.

The 2016 project has recently announced that it will be permanently relocated to a site at Melbourne Zoo.
