Light Catcher opened 2nd December in Queen Victoria Gardens in Melbourne.
The project for the temporary pavilion commissioned by the Naomi Milgrom Foundation in Queen Victoria Gardens explores the condition of architectural device as a powerful attractor and display of the creative and dynamic quality of the city of Melbourne, as previous editions have fully demonstrated.
The structure we imagine is a shimmering device that qualifies itself as a urban lighthouse that hosts and enlighten the cultural activities for the community planned for the 2021 summer season in Melbourne.
Light Catcher具有几何抽象的外形，它可以作为一个舞台，举办多变的活动，Light Catcher不仅能够反射的光的变化。还是一个能反映和放大人、活动、和颜色的万花筒结构，这也是其名称的由来。
The pavilion's geometric abstraction qualify it as a stage intended to host a multiplicity of ever-changing events, such as the variations of the light that it will be able to reflect. A kaleidoscopic structure that reflects and amplifies activities, people and colors. For these reasons we called it The Light Catcher.
The pavilion is composed of a reticular steel structure in galvanized and painted tubular profiles that support a set of panels in a mirror finishing aluminum coating reflecting light, colors, activities and people who will use this space. In force of the particular U-shaped form and smooth edges design, the four pillars can be used also as sitting places.
Light Catcher是一个临时结构，使用预制组件安装，根据Naomi Milgrom基金会简报显示，该装置可以很容易地重新安装，并且能够保证相当长的使用寿命。
The pavilion is designed as a temporary structure that, through the use of precast components, can be easily relocated and can guarantee a longer life in accordance with the indications of the Naomi Milgrom Foundation brief.
Light Catcher 的定位是城市标志设施，作为城市聚会场所和灵感来源，为维多利亚女王花园的Mpavillon系列添上一笔新的色彩。
The Light Catcher propose itself as an urban sign of the consolidated role of civic place of meeting and inspiration that distinguishes the MPavillon in Queen Victoria Gardens.
