This year’s Serpentine Gallery Pavilion was created by Herzog & de Meuron with Ai WeiWei – the team also responsible for the Beijing Olympic Bird’s Nest stadium.
The structure is build into the ground, and crowned with a floating pond of water. The interior is furnished with seating and stools made of cork, while the exterior gives an incredible visual perspective on to the pond which is surrounded by a luscious green lawn.
Note, you cannot walk on the grass, because there are guards stationed at every corner to yell at you to get off the lawn. Get off the grass, and then look beneath the surface.
