Architect Visit: Serpentine Pavillion by SANAA

Issue 30 · London Townhouses · July 29, 2009

This year, Japanese architects SANAA (founded by Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa, architects of the New Museum in New York) were chosen to build the temporary structure that sits on the lawn in front of the Serpentine Gallery for several months in London’s Hyde Park. It’s a brilliant installation, with a sinuous, elongated aluminum pavilion appearing to float on the support poles. Equally compelling are the SANAA designed Rabbit Chairs; contact Japanese furniture manufacturer Next Maruni for information.
