The redesign at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London,   by Amanda Levete.

Top architect Amanda Levete, renowned for her $80-million redesign of the entrance to the Victoria and Albert Museum, has been chosen by Melbourne billionaire philanthropist Naomi Milgrom for the second year of the MPavilion design initiative.

Started in 2014, MPavilion is inspired by London’s Serpentine Pavilion, constructed each summer in Hyde Park. The inaugural MPavilion was designed by Australian architect Sean Godsell.

“Size has never mattered to me, ” Levete said (they all say that). “You could do something incredible in a piece of furniture. What really draws me to the pavilion commission is the opportunity to do things that you could never do with a building. A temporary experience is almost more difficult than a permanent one.”

Bhakthi Puvanenthiran, writing for The Sydney Morning Herald, noted that, like Milgrom, Levete is known for combining a fierce business background with her inspired design.

“I was first invited by Naomi to speak at the Fashion Festival in 2009 and we really clicked. Her role in Melbourne is pivotal, she is a force of nature, ” Levete said.
