The Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2009 - SANAA.

Posted Thursday, July 16, 2009 by SixSevenEightNine in Labels:

The Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2009 has been designed by Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa of leading Japanese architecture practice SANAA.
The architects describes their work: ‘The Pavilion is floating aluminum, 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 uninterrupted view across the park and encouraging access from all sides. It is a sheltered extension of the park where people can read, relax and enjoy lovely summer days. The design is subtle, with plays on light and perception, that is so characteristic of SANAA's works. It resembles a reflective cloud or a floating pool of water, sitting atop a series of delicate aluminum columns. Open and ephemeral in structure, its reflective materials make it sit seamlessly within the natural environment, reflecting both the park and sky around it.
