domus – Best of #pavilions

“With the approach of the Venice Biennale and of Milan Expo 2015 the theme of the pavilion returns topical.

Many architectural types fall into this category: from educational space to architectural folly, from bar to belvedere.

Among the best known in the world there is the temporary Pavilion outside the entrance to the Serpentine Gallery in Kensington Gardens. Designed by Chilean architect Smiljan Radic, the new Serpentine Pavilion is a semi-translucent, cylindrical structure: a shell resting on large quarry stones.

In Australia, Glenorchy Arts and Sculpture Park hosts GASP!, designed by Room 11, where colour and architecture have been used as a vehicle for re-evaluation and re-appreciation of place, creating unity between the bay and the experience.”
