‘Architecture is a service to society; it changes people’s lives and makes society possible. That’s why I liked Naomi Milgrom’s MPavilion project— it’s social, and it’s for the citizens to use. We need to find a new language and that time has come. It’s time for free and flexible architecture.’Carme Pinós, Founder, Estudio Carme Pinós

Exploring how each architect addressed the design of MPavilion, the book reflects a growing and much needed broader conversation about design today, and investigates the critical use of pavilions, parks, and public spaces in creating healthier cities and communities.

‘MPavilion is part of the general phenomenon around the world where people enjoy discussing contemporary ideas. It is part of the phenomenon of encouraging people to be participants rather than simply an audience.’Sir Nicholas Serota CH, Chair, Arts Council England
