Serpentine Pavilion 2014 – Smiljan Radic

It’s coming up to that time of year again when we can kick off our shoes, sit back and relax in a experimental and innovative surrounding right in the heart of London – The Serpentine Pavilion.

This years Serpentine Pavilion is by Chilean architect Smiljan Radic. Radic is the fourteenth architect to accept the invitation to design a temporary Pavilion outside the entrance to the Serpentine Gallery in Kensington Gardens. His design follows Sou Fujimoto’s cloud-like structure which was visited by almost 200,000 people in 2013 and was one of the most visited Pavilions to-date.

Occupying a footprint of some 350 square metres on the lawn of the Serpentine Gallery, plans depict a semi-translucent, cylindrical structure, designed to resemble a shell, which rests on large quarry stones.
