This year’s pavilion at the Serpentine Gallery is designed by Japanese architects Kazuyo Sejima & Ryue Nishizawa of SANAA. We cycled there this evening to have a look and strangely it’s very unimpressive however it works perfectly with its surroundings. It looks like a cloud suspended low over the lawn, the height varies, the structure is made of stainless steel and reflects everything around it, becoming a perfect part of the environment. What does it a real justice is a bird’s eye view picture, you can find it on the gallery’s website.

The same architect are also responsible for The New Museum in NYC, The Gifu Kinagata Apartments in Gifu, Japan and the wonderful Zollverein School of Design in Essen, Germany to name a few. All buildings are very airy, light and work perfectly with their surroundings. I’m sure there are many great things to come from those two talented people.
