Smiljan Radic designs the 2014 Serpentine Gallery pavilion

Smiljan Radic has become the 14th architect to accept the Serpentine Gallery’s invitation to design a temporary exhibition pavilion. The structure will be built in Kensington Gardens close to the entrance to the Serpentine Gallery to host summer events from June 24th to October 19th 2014.

A long list of world-renowned architects have designed Serpentine Pavilions since the first one was built by Zaha Hadid in 2000, including MVRDV, Alvaro Siza + Eduardo Souto de Moura, SANAA, Peter Zumthor, Herzog & de Meuron + Ai Weiwei and Sou Fujimoto in 2013, who produced one of the most frequently visited pavilions in the history of the project.
Like Sou Fujimoto’s design, Smiljan Radic’s pavilion has a rounded structure.
Its translucent, curved shape brings to mind a huge seashell resting on big blocks of stone. At night this semi-transparent shell is lit up by amber lights, becoming a beacon to passers-by.
