Serpentine Galleries celebrates the 15th anniversary

In 2015 Serpentine Galleries celebrates the 15th anniversary of the world-renowned Pavilion commission and the 15th Serpentine Gallery Pavilion was designed by José Selgas and Lucía Cano,  and consists of a double-layered plastic skin in a variety of colours, wrapped around a series of metal arches.

“When the Serpentine invited us to design the Pavilion, we began to think about what the structure needed to provide and what materials should be used in a Royal Park in London,” said the architects.

“These questions, mixed with our own architectural interests and the knowledge that the design needs to connect with nature and feel part of the landscape, provided us with a concept based on pure visitor experience. We sought a way to allow the public to experience architecture through simple elements: structure, light, transparency, shadows, lightness, form, sensitivity, change, surprise, colour and materials.”

“The spatial qualities of the pavilion only unfold when accessing the structure and being immersed within it,” they added.
