The first images of the plans for the 2015 Serpentine Gallery Pavilion by architects José Selgas and Lucia Cano of SelgasCano have been released.

The Spanish architects’ structure will be made of brightly coloured translucent ETFE membranes, so that the pavilion will look like a multi-coloured cocoon with various public entrances and a café in the centre.

Architects José Selgas and Lucia Cano say that the purpose of their project was to encourage visitors to discover architecture through a number of simple elements which have become essential keys to the 2015 Serpentine Gallery Pavilion: structure, light, transparency, shadow, form, surprise, colour and materials.

Previous Serpentine Gallery Pavilions were designed by Peter Zumthor in 2011, Herzog & de Meuron and Ai Weiwei in 2012, Sou Fujimoto in 2013 and architect Smiljan Radic in 2014.
