About

The iconic Serpentine Gallery Pavilion is designed by Spanish architects SelgasCano in 2015.

Every year a different creative is commissioned to create a temporary structure as the site becomes one of the leading world venues for architectural experimentation. For the pavilion's 15th year, SelgasCano, led by the creative talents of José Selgas and Lucía Cano, are making their first foray into UK architecture with the construct.

The only rules of their brief is that the design should be for a flexible, multi-purpose social space that offers a café for visitors throughout the summer months. The work by the Spanish team promises to contrast with the 2014 effort by Smiljan Radić, whose structure was said to resemble a spaceship lying on Neolithic stones.

Previous designs from SelgasCano include light-filled harbourside structures, playful floating shapes and even the subterranean Office in the Woods, all of which display their approach to architecture as part of the natural landscape.
