Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2016 was designed by Bjarke Ingels (1974).
He founded BIG Studio in 2005, with offices in New York and Copenhagen, currently employing 300 people: architects, designers, builders and thinkers, working around the world and winning numerous architectural competitions and awards.
Continuing with the tradition of the Serpentine Pavilion, nobody is indifferent in whether they like it or not. The Pavilion was built with three different elements; a bricks-frames of Fiberglas of between 3mmm and 9mm, shaped aluminium profiles and wooden boards for benches inside.
The Pavilion has an immaterial appearance from the front; this is because of the semi transparent brick frames that create the structure. From a different oblique view, there is a strong vision of a moiré or pixeled effect, a dynamic movement is created. At the same time the structure reminds me of a kind church that at any moment could take off and could fly away. At either extremes of the Pavilion there are entrances that invite you to visit, to cross through its centre.
