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

The pavilion structure responds to the climate and the landscape, exploiting the nature of the pavilion form and producing a design that speaks in response to the weather. Rooting the pavilion in its parkland setting, this forest canopy in the heart of the city gives shelter to a programme of events.

Working with specialists mouldCAM, the pavilion uses boundary-pushing technology of composite materials to form the translucent petals that are up to 5m in diameter but only a few millimeters thick.
