A diversity of structures for 2016
The Serpentine Gallery has announced an expansion to it’s highly regarded pavilion programme with 2016 seeing five international architects working on five different structures.
The main, 300 square metre centrepiece pavilion for 2016 will be designed by Danish architects Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), with a series of four smaller, 25 square metre Summer Houses inspired by the nearby Queen Caroline’s Temple, built in 1734. Each of the five structures has been designed by an architect of international renown.
At 36 years old, emerging UK talent, Asif Khan, is the youngest Summer House contributor and 93 year old Hungarian-born Paris-based designer, Yoni Friedman, the eldest. Berlin and New York based Barkow Leibinger, and Amsterdam and Lagos-based architect Kunle Adeyemi, have also designed structures for this significant addition to the Serpentine’s architectural programme.
We are delighted to be collaborating with such a wide range of talent and experience on prototyping, manufacturing and installing both the main Pavilion and each of the four Summer Houses for 2016.
We have manufactured and installed each of the Serpentine Pavilions since 2009.
