Serpentine Pavilion 2020: CounterspaceThe all-woman team of directors at Johannesburg-based practice Counterspace is behind the design for this year's Serpentine Pavilion. The youngest ever architects to be commissioned for the Serpentine's high profile architecture commission, now in its 20th year, Counterspace has come up with a design based on gathering spaces. As well as the pavilion in Kensington Gardens, moveable small parts are relocated to neighbourhoods across London while public talks and debates raise questions such as: how can architecture create a space where we are all linked, not ranked? How can architecture promote wellbeing? And can a structure evolve and change together with the environment? The lead architect on the project, Sumayya Vally, said of the design: "Places of memory and care in Brixton, Hoxton, Hackney, Whitechapel, Edgware Road, Peckham, Ealing, North Kensington and beyond are transferred onto the Serpentine lawn. Where they intersect, they produce spaces to be together."

 

About Serpentine Gallery

Found in the middle of leafy Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, there are two galleries that go by the name of The Serpentine, the original Serpentine Gallery, established in 1970, and the Serpentine Sackler Gallery, designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, a 5 minute walk away across The Serpentine Bridge, was added in 2013.
