Today is Architecture, one of our passions, if you happen to be in London this summer you must visit the Serpentin Pavilion 2017.This is a temporary pavilion. Since 2000 the Serpentine Gallery has invited an international architectural studio to be built for the first time in the United Kingdom. Architects such as Peter Zumthor, Frank Gehry, SANAA and Sou Fujimoto have been selected in previous editions. This year has been chosen Francis Kéré, the award winning architect of Gando, Burkina Faso.
Kéré wants to protect us from the heat of summer and connect with other visitors, so the pavilion is inspired by a tree, central element of relationship and protection in his native village.
We are still in London. We continue with architecture. After the Serpentin Pavilion and just ten minutes walk, through Exhibition Road you will meet with V & A Museum, where Amanda Levete Architects (AL-A) has developed a new project that contemplates the new entrance to the museum, a courtyard and a temporary exhibition hall. The product of an international competition, the project establishes a new relationship between the existing historic building of the V & A Museum and the Exhibition Road. Amazing!!
