Serpentine Pavilion 2015

Bookmark and Share
The Serpentine Gallery opened its 15th pavilion designed by the Spanish architects SelgasCano. The institution's director, Julia Peyton-Jones and co-director Hans Ulrich Obrist desrcibed the landmark bold and innovative. It's contemporary in every sense: while designing they already considered its appearance on social media platforms. It's truly fascinating on photos, perhaps even more than alive, which pushes the study to a new limit and allows people to enjoy the show from far away places just on the screen. 
The architects are known for using low-cost materials, and their concept works this time too. They used different type of plastics, but the magic comes from the synchrony of the material and the nature when the light fills the space with fairy tale-like colors. The architects named London's underground as inspiration, for its chaotic yet structured flow. 
The very first Pavilion was designed by Zaha Hadid 15 year ago, and has found a new home in Cornwall. The current one is also bought by London-based investers, and will be installed in Los Angeles.

The Pavilion is open for the public from 25 June until 18 October, admission is free.
