SERPENTINE GALLERY PAVILION PROJECT

SERPENTINE PAVILION HYDE PARK LONDON

Each summer, the Serpentine Gallery in Hyde Park, London invites an internationally renowned architect to create their first built structure in England. The immediacy of the process - a maximum of six months from invitation to completion - provides a unique model for commissioning architecture. The selection of the architects, chosen for consistently extending the boundaries of architecture pracrice, is guided by the Serpentine's commitment to offer innovative ways for all ages to engage with modern & contemporary art, architecture & design. The brief is to design a 300 square metre Pavilion that is used as a cafe by day & a forum for learning, debate & entertainment at night. There is no budget for the project: it is realised through sponsorship, support & the sale of the pavilion.
