Shelving system inspired pyramid in the BIG way

This week the Danish architect, Bjarke Ingels, opens The Serpentine Gallery's main pavilion to the public as a part of the Serpentine’s summer architecture programme 2016.

Bjarke Ingels’ design is a series of translucent fibreglass frames or hollow blocks in a brick wall pattern. It has curved entrances at both ends with a certain appeal to the Minecraft generation. The pavilion reflects the BIG theme of “bigamy”, and in Bjarke Ingels’ words it is:

- A wall that becomes a hall, a gate that becomes a space, and a shelving system that becomes a pavilion.

The Serpentine in London consists of two exhibition spaces on both side of The Serpentine Lake in London’s Kensington Gardens. Apart from the eight annual shows, the Serpentine also presents a Serpentine Pavilion every summer.

The Serpentine Galleries run a number of projects to build dynamic relationships between art, artists and people, and work to make people engage with modern art, architecture and design. The Serpentine Gallery Pavilion is a programme of temporary and experimental constructions by international architects or design teams, who have not completed a significant building in England at the time of the Gallery’s invitation.
