M Pavilion – Tadao Ando
In 2023, MPavilion welcomes influential Pritzker Prize Laureate Tadao Ando as our esteemed designer for MPavilion 10. One of Japan’s leading contemporary architects, Tadao Ando is a master of light known for his striking geometric interventions in nature. Positioned within Melbourne’s cultural and botanic garden precinct, MPavilion 10 offers a memorable structure that is in dialogue with the park setting to create a space in harmony with nature. MPavilion 10 features a large canopy, a 14.4-metre aluminum-clad disc resting on a central concrete column. Two offset squares create two entrances that lead to the centre of the pavilion. Concrete walls of varying lengths partially enclose the space to create a tranquil sanctuary reminiscent of a traditional Japanese walled garden.
