Temporary structure built as one of the Serpentine gallery's annual summer pavilions in Hyde Park, London

The 170m2 pavilion made from fibreglass resembles a semi-translucent shell resting on large stones and took just six weeks to build.

A largely open-plan interior includes a café and a social events space.

The building is the fourteenth pavilion in the longstanding series which has included architects including Herzog & de Meuron, Jean Nouvel, Zaha Hadid, and Frank Gehry.
