Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2016

The transitory event building was designed by BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group) and was opened in June 2016, in Kensington Gardens, London. For the last sixteen years, each year, bespoke architects were invited to design the pavilion. When I was in the UK for nearly six weeks during summer break, I had the chance to witness this piece of brilliant architecture. Such a pleasurable experience to be inside the pavilion, looking out. Or sitting on the patio looking into people queue-ing for beverages. I sat with my flat white, immersing the sun and my mind wandered around watching people do their own thing. Be it as contemplative as me; having a quick catch up with friends; or business meetings or supervising their children.
