Now open the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2012
June 1, 2012

Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2012 London Herzog de Meuron Ai WeiweiNow open in London, the 2012 Serpentine Gallery Pavilion designed by Herzog & de Meuron and Ai Weiwei. It is the twelfth commission in the Gallery’s annual series, the world’s first and most ambitious architectural programme of its kind.
The design team responsible for the celebrated Beijing National Stadium, which was built for the 2008 Olympic Games and won the prestigeous RIBA Lubetkin Prize, will come together again in London in 2012 in a special development of the Serpentine’s acclaimed annual commission which will be presented as part of the London 2012 Festival, the culmination of the Cultural Olympiad. The Pavilion will be Herzog & de Meuron and Ai Weiwei’s first collaborative built structure in the UK.
This year’s Pavilion take visitors beneath the Serpentine’s lawn to explore the hidden history of its previous Pavilions. Eleven columns characterising each past Pavilion and a twelfth column will support a floating platform roof 1.5 metres above ground. Taking an archaeological approach, the architects have created a design that inspire visitors to look beneath the surface of the park as well as back in time across the ghosts of the earlier structures.
You can follow on AR's dossier the updates with new photos and drawings.
