Unzipping Serpentine Pavilion 2016

LONDON – This year’s Serpentine Pavilion 16th edition is designed by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) – founded and headed by Danish architect Bjarke Ingels in 2005 with offices in Copenhagen and New York.

The pavilion is described as “an ‘unzipped wall’ that is transformed from straight line to three-dimensional space, creating a dramatic structure that by day houses a café and free family activities and by night becomes a space for the Serpentine’s acclaimed Park Nights programme of performative works by artists, writers and musicians.” (Source: Serpentine Galleries)

But what’s different about this year’s edition is that it extends beyond the main pavilion with four architects, the likes of Kunlé Adeyemi, Barkow Leibinger, Yona Friedman and Asif Khan comissioned to each design a 25sqm Summer House.

Be sure to check out all the works over at Serpentine Pavilion, London.
Exhibition runs till 9 October 2016.
