The 15th temporary pavilion on the Serpentine’s lawn in London’s Kensington Gardens

The Pavilion is a double-skinned, polygonal structure consisting of panels of a translucent, multi-coloured fluorine-based polymer (ETFE) woven through and wrapped like webbing.

Visitors enter and exit the pavilion at a number of different points, passing through a ‘secret corridor’ between the outer and inner layer of the structure and into the Pavilion’s brilliant, stained glass-effect interior.

As with previous pavilion commissions, the brief was to design a flexible, multi-purpose social space with a café that is open throughout the summer.
