Serpentine Pavilion 2009
The serpentine gallery pavilion 2009 that’s set upon the gallery’s lawn has been designed by Kezuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa of leading architecture practice SANAA. Sejima and Nishizawa have created the stunning pavilion to resemble a reflective cloud or a floating pool of water on top of a series of delicate columns. The structure varies in height sweeping up and down in elegant curves almost reaching the ground at some places, It raps itself around the surrounding trees and due to its reflective material it blends in perfectly with the natural surroundings. Overall it’s a spectacular piece of architecture and a wonder to see. This year pavilion is the ninth commission in the gallery’s annual series, the worlds first and most ambitious architectural programmes and a great chance for architects to debut their work it also brings the best of contemporary architecture to London for everyone to enjoy.
