SERPENTINE PAVILION 2016

This year’s pavilion at the Serpentine Gallery in Kensington Gardens was designed by Danish architect Bjarke Ingels and is our favourite of them all.

The extreme simplicity and use of repetition echoes Fujimoto’s principle in 2013, nevertheless bringing a different sense of happiness.

Creating the “extraordinary out of the ordinary” as Bjarke explains has been their leitmotiv. By using only three elements: fibre glass frames, plus shaped aluminium profiles and wooden boards it follows the principle of a brick wall where pieces are pulled apart to create a curve.

The result is a stunning canyon that runs up to the sky giving a cathedral effect and submerging visitors.

The views are ever-changing from solid to void as the visitor’s eye’s run-through. As the seasons unfold, the views of the surroundings will change and make it a wonderful sight-seeing experience.

The pavilion, housed with a café, will be used by the public and host events over the next few months.
