MPavilion keynote: Rachaporn Choochuey, all(zone)

‘Building with the minimum to give the maximum performative environment that could encourage people to live together with an open possibility for the future adaptation’ has always been our design principle.  With huge support from the best designers and individuals in Melbourne, MPavilion 2022 allows us to express this idea with clearest form.

The global pandemic has revealed improper built environments everywhere, both physically and socially. Climate change demands architecture to perform better in all aspects. Hopefully MPavilion 2022 will become a tiny stepping stone towards a place where we could live together better also with the world around us.
