The Serpentine's Unearthly Summer Pavilion
on 28 June 2014
For well over a decade now, London's Serpentine Galleries have annually commissioned a different architect to create a temporary structure in the famous Hyde Park space, and this year's concept from Chilean designer Smiljan Radic presents what's sure to be the project's most obscure offering to date. Radic's cocoon-like alien structure presents a great juxtaposition of materials and textures; massive boulders strewn about set the foundation for a light, almost brittle structure. Highly conceptual and visually striking, the installation is on view everyday for free through 19 October 2014.
