Serpentine Pavilion

Relax on the lawns of Kensington Gardens under the shade of the 2017 Serpentine Pavilion, designed by award-winning architect, Diébédo Francis Kéré.

The walls are made up of triangular sections of wood, which create a design of V-shaped perforations. The slatted-timber roof features the same triangular motif, with some of the panels angling upwards to allow light into the pavilion.

Originally from Burkina Faso, Kéré is the 17th architect to design the Serpentine Pavilion. His vision embraces the changeable British climate, with a central open-air courtyard, a circular roof mimicking a tree canopy and an inventive water drainage system that creates a spectacular waterfall effect when it rains.

Explore the relationship between nature and architectural design this summer at the Serpentine Galleries’ annual temporary pavilion!
