Commenting on the MPavilion concept:

‘Even with the most modest of architecture projects, you are changing the world.’—Rem Koolhaas, Founder, OMA‘ Architecture is a service to society; it changes people’s lives and makes society possible. That’s why I liked Naomi Milgrom’s MPavilionproject—it’s social, and it’s for the citizens to use. We need to find a new language and that time has come. It’s time for free and flexible architecture.’ —Carme Pinós, Founder, Estudio Carme Pinós
Exploring how each architect addressed the design of MPavilion, the book reflects a growing and much needed broader conversation about design today, and investigates the critical use of pavilions, parks, and public spaces in creating healthier cities and communities.‘ MPAVILION: ENCOUNTERS WITH DESIGN AND ARCHITECTURE is available through Thames & Hudson AU
