2015 Serpentine Gallery Pavilion – challenges of form and fabric

The Serpentine Gallery Pavilion is an annual commission of a temporary installation in the lawns of Kensington Gardens, London, and aims to be a fusion of art and contemporary architecture. An internationally acclaimed architect, who is yet to complete a project within the UK, is commissioned by the Gallery to deliver an initial concept and work together with the Technical Advisers, AECOM with David Glover, and the Main Contractor, Stage One, to deliver the final product over a period of less than six months.

In 2015, Spanish architects selgascano accepted the invitation of the Gallery to deliver its 15th Pavilion. This article provides a brief summary of the design-and-build process, detailing how the team developed the initial concept into the final Pavilion, which opened to the public in the summer of 2015.
