Bijoy Jain of Studio Mumbai, India, is to design the third annual MPavilion in the Australian city of Melbourne, a temporary venue for art, interiors and architecture lectures and discussions.
Naomi Milgrom chair of Naomi Milgrom Foundation which runs the pavilion said: “Bijoy Jain is one of the world’s most fascinating architects.
“His approach to design reflects a deep concern for craft, sustainability and community. Studio Mumbai’s work inspires us all to reconsider the way we design and continues MPavilion’s interest in collaboration and global connectedness.”
He said: “I’m honoured to be commissioned by the Naomi Milgrom Foundation to design the next MPavilion in Melbourne. I want it to be a symbol of the elemental nature of communal structures. Like Naomi, I see MPavilion as a place of engagement: a space to discover the essentials of the world – and of oneself.”
