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

Tuesday, August 9th, 2011

Article source: 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.

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.

The Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2007 is designed by the internationally acclaimed artist Olafur Eliasson and the award-winning Norwegian architect Kjetil Thorsen, of the architectural practice Snøhetta. This timberclad structure resembles a spinning top and brings a dramatic vertical dimension to the traditional single-level pavilion. A wide spiralling ramp makes two complete turns, allowing visitors to ascend from the Gallery lawn to the highest point for views across Kensington Gardens as well as a bird’s eye view of the chamber below.

The Pavilion is floating aluminium, drifting freely between the trees like smoke. The reflective canopy undulates across the site, expanding the park and sky. Its appearance changes according to the weather, allowing it to melt into the surroundings. It works as a field of activity with no walls, allowing views to extend uninterrupted across the park and encouraging access from all sides.

The Red Sun Pavilion in London, Uk by Jean Nouvel Architect

Saturday, July 23rd, 2011

I’ve always considered architecture as a receptacle for sensations.  As the answer to an unspoken question, architecture’s main role is to create and transmit these sensations.  I immediately felt the Serpentine Gallery’s commission for a summer pavilion as a request to unearth little sparks of emotion.  A summer pavilion in a sprawling park… Oriental memories float to the surface.  Hyde Park, Kensington:  the simplicity and openness of these gently tamed expanses.
