Tunnel of Colour

Every year the Serpentine Gallery commissions a new architect to design and build a temporary pavilion for the summer on the grounds next to the gallery in Kensington Gardens. A place for the public to explore and admire, and this year I just had to go check it out. There have been some brilliant looking Pavilion's in the past 15 years.

"The Pavilion is an amorphous, double-skinned, polygonal structure consisting of panels of a translucent, multi-coloured fluorine-based polymer (ETFE) woven through and wrapped like webbing. Visitors can enter and exit the Pavilion at a number of different points, passing through a ‘secret corridor’ between the outer and inner layer of the structure and into the Pavilion’s brilliant, stained glass-effect interior."

This years Pavilion was created by the Spanish couple of José Selgas and Lucía Cano, or as they like to call themselves selgascano. It honestly looks beautiful in the sun light, inside and out, the blend of colours are fascinating and creates such warmth. I would definitely recommend pop along for a look if you are passing that area.

The Serpentine Pavilion is open daily from 10am to 6pm until 18th October
Entry is free, and there’s a pop up tea shop and ice cream stall inside if you fancied a little treat.
