With a new designer selected each year for the annual commission All(zone), led by architect Rachaporn Choochuey, was selected to create the 2022 edition.
All(zone)’s pavilion will be made from layers of coloured net and fabrics with a waterproof membrane typically used in architectural construction.
The waterproof membrane layer will be supplied by French material technology company Serge Ferrari and will protect visitors from the elements.
The membrane layer will have a transparent finish that will allow light to filter through to colourful latticed fabrics beneath.
Choochuey explained the temporary pavilion was designed to celebrate outdoor living and mimics the effect of being underneath a tree.
“We visualised rays of light flickering through layers of leaves that give a very relaxing ambience –like being under a big tree,” said Choochuey.
“In a world where we increasingly encounter a shortage of resources and ever-changing social conditions, the lifespan of architecture in relation to its materiality should be investigated,” she continued.
“The intent of our design for MPavilion is to explore the potential of architecture to embrace a lighter and more casual spirit, and become even more sustainable and engaging.”
The pavilion will be installed in the Queen Victoria Gardens in November 2022. It will be used as a venue for events, workshops and performances.
After the summer, the pavilion will be relocated to a permanent location within Melbourne.
In previous years, Glenn Murcutt created a minimal pavilion with a linear “lantern” roof.
The annual commission has also seen designs from Carme Pinós who built a series of latticed timber triangles across landscaped mounds in 2018.
