Following a successful summer installation, the MPavilion 2015 is being gifted to the City Of Melbourne in Collins Street.
March 7th, 2016
The MPavilion 2015 installation, a high tech canopy of composite petals and carbon fibre stems, will be moved to the corner of Collins Street and Harbour Esplanade in Docklands, serving as a public art feature for the city.
Naomi Milgrom, chair of the Naomi Milgrom Foundation says “In its new permanent home, Amanda Levete’s MPavilion 2015 will continue to inspire and be part of our city’s cultural heritage as a public amenity of Melbourne. Amanda’s magical, forest-like structure joins a growing family of architectural masterpieces to be enjoyed by the people of Melbourne for years to come.”
The relocation follows the news that the installation, designed by Amanda Levete of London-based studio AL_A, has been shortlisted for the famed World Architecture News (WAN) Awards in the Small Spaces category.
Places Victoria will begin works on the installation at the Docklands throughout March, with plans to properly unveil the installation in mid-2016.
Amanda Levete’s design comprises an ultra-thin forest-style canopy, composed of five-metre-wide translucent petals, with each petal being a tiny three millimetres thin.
