Architects Rem Koolhaas and David Gianotten of the prolific international practice OMA have released their designs for the next iteration of MPavilion.

OMA's pavilion design brings modern flexibility to the ancient amphitheatre with movable structures enabling cross-functionality, whether stage, auditorium or playground.

The leafy surrounds of Melbourne's Queen Victoria Gardens will play a leading role, as the design attempts to challenge the divide between the in- and outside and between audiences and performers.

Previous architects have included Sean Godsell (2014), Amanda Levete (2015) and Bijoy Jain (2016). Koolhaas and Gianotten's MPavilion 2017 will open for a free program of talks, workshops, performances and installations from 5 October to 7 February.

MPavilion is an initiative of the Naomi Milgrom Foundation and is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.
