Temporary aluminum clad structure built as one of the Serpentine galleries annual summer pavilions in Hyde Park, London

The building was based on the concept of an origami figure. This created an angular panel structure that seemingly folds over itself, forming overlapping spaces.

The 35x18x7m aluminium structure functions as a lecture theatre, cafe and gallery party venue.

The reflective quality of the material aimed to mirror the surrounding green space and the Serpentine Gallery itself.
