  • NJM Loves: Serpentine Summer Pavilion

    The Serpentine Pavilion is a temporary architectural masterpiece conceived in 2000 as a way to bring innovative architecture to the heart of London. Designed each year by a renowned architect, from Zaha Hadid to Bjarke Ingels, this temporary structure nestled within London’s iconic Hyde Park has become a must-visit destination for art and architecture enthusiasts alike.

    This year, architect Lina Ghotmeh was inspired by Hyde Park’s trees to create a design rooted in sustainability titled À table – a French call to sit together at the table to share a meal and converse.

  • One of the remarkable aspects of the Serpentine Summer Pavilion is its ability to seamlessly integrate with the surrounding natural landscape, and this year was no exception as its form responds to the shape of the park’s tree canopies. Internal wooden beams that encircle the perimeter of the structure emerge as thin tree trunks and the fretwork panels that sit between the beams feature plant-like cut out patterns, aiding ventilation and allowing natural light to come in.
