The invitation to design a Serpentine Gallery Pavilion is a commission that not only confirms an architect’s prestige, but also places that architect alongside some of the greatest names in contemporary architecture. 2015 sees the Pavilion series celebrate its 15th anniversary of architectural experimentation with a colourful and playful design by Spanish architects SelgasCano.
Serpentine Galleries Director, Julia Peyton-Jones and Co-Director Hans Ulrich Obrist comment: “We are proud to work with SelgasCano in this, the 15th year of a commission unique in the western world that continues to showcase some of the boldest and innovative designs in contemporary architecture internationally.”
To celebrate the unveiling of this year’s Pavilion, this month’s Exrated looks back over the past designs and the architects that have made this world-renowned landmark the success that it is today. Read the full feature on page 24.
