Serpentine Summer Houses 2016 London

The Serpentine Gallery doubles... no, quintuples its bid! Fifteen years after the start of the programme that has seen world-famous architects take turns building the temporary pavilion for summer events on the garden outside the Serpentine Gallery, the also involves construction of four summer homes. The “Serpentine Summer Houses” and the Serpentine Pavilion, to be built by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), will be one of the principal attractions for the world of architecture in London this summer.
The “Serpentine Summer House” will measure 25 m2, inspired by Queen Caroline’s Temple, a stone summer house attributed to William Kent built in Kensington Gardens in 1734.
Like for the Serpentine Pavilion, the architects appointed to build the Summer Houses must not have built any permanent constructions in the United Kingdom. The architects appointed to build the houses in the first edition are: Kunlé Adeyemi – NLÉ (Amsterdam/Lagos), Barkow Leibinger (Berlin/New York), Yona Friedman (Paris) and Asif Khan (London).
