Londons Serpentine Galery Pavilion 2011 –
Anyone who was expecting another spectacular contemporary building that looks like a completed construction might be dissapointed.
The Serpentine Pavilion, as it’s current creator- Peter Zumthor- says is supposed to evoke emotions by its misteriously simple outside physical body and more complex labyrinth inside the leads you to the beutyful garden , sunny metaphysical atrium full of plants that symolises the initimacy and a life .
The internal garden , thatnks to its black walls seurrounding it , becomes as a completely isolated place, appears as a garden within a bigger garden- Hyde Park.
After spending few minutes in the internal garden and seeing how many people likes it , suddenly it strikes you that it is a brilliant idea and you stop thinking about the blak bitumen painted plywood,waetherprove but delicate walls.
London offers a thousand of attractions to its visitors every year, and one of them, worth of seing is definitely an annualy exhibition of Serpentine Galery’s Pavilion, which is usualy constructed by famous architects.
In 2008 we could see Frank Gherys Pavillion, Zaha Hadid pavillion the other years and in 2010 we could see the construction designed by french architect Juan Nouvell.
The architect played with the colour in his design, using the red as a symbol of Great britain, trying to highlight some interesting perspective views, existing landscape features in the park.
Really absorbing and intriguing design and a very fresh idea made the building very pleasant place to stay,spend some quality time with the family or have some rest after an exausting walk along the Kensington Park.#
Realy love the sharp and dramatic character of the installation achieved with the transprent reds and deconstruction of the elements.
