Seeking Shelter

I have found (a colourful) shelter from the rain whilst in the park. But alas! It was not to be.IMG_1595I was turned away when I tried to go inside.

Oh well, it doesn’t look like a lot of shelter to be honest.IMG_1594It’s supposedly an art installation!!!

Guess we have to play outside againIMG_1606 Bring it on, Georgie!!!IMG_1602May’s comment:

“Over the past 15 years the Serpentine Pavilion has become an international site for architectural experimentation, presenting inspirational temporary structures by some of the world’s greatest architects. A much-anticipated landmark in London each summer, the Pavilion is one of the top-ten most visited architectural and design exhibitions in the world.

Spanish architects selgascano designed the 15th Serpentine Pavilion. The award-winning studio, headed by José Selgas and Lucía Cano, is the first Spanish architecture practice to be asked to design the temporary Pavilion on the Serpentine’s lawn in London’s Kensington Gardens. In keeping with the criteria of the scheme, this is the studio’s first new structure in the UK. 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.” – Serpentine Galleries
