Serpentine Gallery's 15th Pavilion by Selgascano

26/06/2015

A party atmosphere drew crowds to The Serpentine Gallery on the evening of 23rd June for the viewing of the annual summer Pavilion in Kensington Gardens.  In its 15th year the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion was designed by architects Jose Selgas and Lucia Cano ‘Selgascano' husband & wife team from Spain.

Previous pavilions have been created by some of the world's leading architects therefore, the Serpentine Gallery was again expected to present a special summer feature at one of London's busiest Royal parks.  Selgascano produced a simplistic structure with colourful ribbons and transparent plastic sheeting supported by metal frames. Looking at the Pavilion from outside one would think it was a work in progress till one enters and sees the full effect of light filtering through.  Children visiting with parents enjoyed exploring the structure as a fun activity area for them to play in.

The pavilion is not just for show it has a practical use and will serve as an upmarket cafe managed by prestigious store Fortnum & Mason where traditional afternoon tea shall be made available.  The space will also be used for summer functions including the Serpentine Gallery Summer Party.
