Bespoke Layers of Coloured Nets and Fabrics Adorn this Canopied Structure | MPavilion by all(zone)

MPavilion, in its ninth year, has reportedly commissioned international architecture, urbanism and design practice all(zone) as their designer. Annually commissioned by The Naomi Milgrom Foundation, MPavilion draws a similar concept to London’s renowned Serpentine Pavilion. Led by architect and managing director Rachaporn Choochuey, all (zone) has been selected to create the 2022 edition of MPavilion on account of its ability to cater to sustainable design using local materials. Here is a detailed report on the project by SURFACES REPORTER (SR).

all(zone) will reportedly use architectural fabrics with a waterproof membrane and coloured meshes to drape the tensile system of the 2022 MPavilion.

The Bangkok-based architecture studio all(zone) will reportedly use architectural fabrics with a waterproof membrane and coloured meshes to drape the tensile system of the 2022 MPavilion in Melbourne. To enhance its architectural construction, the studio’s project renders showcases multiple metallic columns supporting and anchoring the tensile system which will be created in close collaboration with engineering companies Tensys and Aecom. As for the waterproof membrane layer, which will protect visitors from rain and harsh sunlight, it will be procured from French material technology company Serge Ferrari. Honed in a transparent finish, the membrane layer will allow light to filter through the coloured latticed fabrics beneath.

Commenting on the project brief, Rachaporn Choochuey, Architect and Managing Director, all(zone), says, “We are very excited to be a part of the dynamic energy of Melbourne and hope our collaborative efforts with MPavilion will inspire people to reflect more on how our built environment can help us to live better together.” She further explained that the temporary pavilion has been designed to celebrate outdoor living, underneath a tree. The design intent has been to explore the potential of architecture to embrace a lighter and sustainable design approach.

MPavilion will be reportedly installed in November 2022 at the Queen Victoria Gardens and will serve to host several events, workshops and performances.
