2015 Serpentine Pavilion design released! A colourful design by SelgasCano

The design is familiar with these young architects’ characteristic style: following the principles of light, bold colour and unconventional shapes, the building will consist of a “double-layered shell, made of opaque and translucent fluorine-based plastic (ETFE) in a variety of colours”.

Serpentine reveals today designs for the 15th annual Pavilion. The render by Madrid-based architects SelgasCano shows an amorphous, double-skinned, polygonal structure consisting of panels of a translucent, multi-coloured fabric membrane (ETFE) woven through and wrapped in webbing.
