Amanda Levete on the technology and concept behind her swaying MPavilion

[PODCAST] Christine Murray interviews Levete and MPavilion patron Naomi Milgrom

AR Editor Christine Murray sat down with Amanda Levete and MPavilion patron Naomi Milgrom at AL_A’s offices in London to discuss this year’s pavilion design, and the ambitious programme which commissions a new architect each year to create an event space for a green space in Melbourne.

The MPavilion is the product of an Anglo-Australian collaboration led by AL_A, working with Arup’s London and Melbourne offices, alongside mouldCAM and Kane Construction. Featuring the latest technology in nautical engineering the MPavilion creates the sensation of a forest canopy in Melbourne’s Queen Victoria Gardens.

‘Our MPavilion 2015 is designed to create the sensation of a forest canopy, made up of seemingly fragile, translucent petals supported by impossible slender columns that sway gently in the breeze. Under the canopy, the light will be dappled and dreamy’
