Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2006 in London, UK by Rem Koolhaas and Cecil Balmond, with Arup

The Serpentine Pavilion 2006 was co-designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Rem Koolhaas and innovative structural designer Cecil Balmond.

The centrepiece of the design was a spectacular ovoid-shaped inflatable canopy that floated above the Gallery’s lawn. Made from translucent material, the canopy was raised into the air or lowered to cover the amphitheatre below according to the weather. A frieze designed by Thomas Demand marked the first collaboration between an artist and the designers of the Pavilion.

‘Why can’t all new buildings be this good? Toyo Ito’s magical summer pavilion at the Serpentine Gallery is a lesson in imagination.’ Evening Standard The Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2002 appeared to be an extremely complex random pattern that proved, upon careful examination, to derive from an algorithm of a cube that expanded as it rotated.

It all started on a September night  in 2009, when we all settled up there, on the roof, or at least what remained of it. The building had been through a major fire a year before. The scene was set.

Zaha Hadid’s structure radically reinvented the accepted idea of a tent or a marquee. It took the form of a triangulated roof structure spanning an impressive internal space of 600sq metres by using a steel primary structure. A folding form of angular flat planes extending to the ground gave an illusion of solidity while at the same time creating a variety of internal spaces.

With the opening of its new building in June 2008, the Contemporary Jewish Museum (CJM) ushered in a new chapter in its 20-plus year history of engaging audiences and artists in exploring contemporary perspectives on Jewish culture, history, art and ideas. The new facility is a lively center where people of all ages and backgrounds can gather to appreciate art, share diverse perspectives, and engage in hands-on activities. Inspired by the Hebrew phrase “l’chaim” (to life), the building is a physical embodiment of the CJM’s mission to bring together tradition and innovation in an exploration of the relevance of Jewish values and traditions in the 21st century.  The new 63,000-square-foot facility, located on Mission Street between 3rd & 4th Streets in downtown San Francisco, enables the Museum to present an expanded array of engaging programming including art exhibitions, live music, film screenings, lectures and discussions, and educational activities for audiences of all ages and backgrounds.

This building was born to be able to hold it to prevent rain and wind.
This building is made only on four pieces of walls and roofs. The primitive constitution showed the possibility “that a person seemed to be able to spend somehow”. In fact, it rises in joy and presence of mind and discovery here.
