The Serpentine announced today that, in tandem with the 16th Pavilion, it expands its internationally acclaimed programme of exhibiting architecture in a built form by commissioning four architects to each design a 25sqm Summer House. The four Summer Houses are inspired by the nearby Queen Caroline’s Temple, a classical style summer house, built in 1734 and a stone’s throw from the Serpentine Gallery. In line with the criteria for the selection of the Pavilion architect, each architect chosen by the Serpentine has yet to build a permanent building in England.

The Serpentine Pavilion will be designed by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) (Copenhagen/New York); the four Summer Houses will be designed by Kunlé Adeyemi – NLÉ (Amsterdam/Lagos); Barkow Leibinger (Berlin/New York); Yona Friedman (Paris); and Asif Khan (London).


// La Serpentine ha annunciato oggi che, insieme al nuovo 16esimo Pavilion, allargherà il suo acclamato programma di esposizione dell’architettura commissionando a quattro altri studi il progetto di una Summer House di 25mq. Le quattro case si ispirano all’adiacente Queen Caroline’s Temple, una classica casa estiva, costruita nel 1734 e vicinissima alla Serpentine Gallery. In linea con i criteri utilizzati per la scelta del progettista del Pavilion, ogni studio scelto dalla Serpentine non dovrà aver ancora progettato un edificio permanente su suolo britannico.  

Così, il Serpentine Pavilion sarà progettato da Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG)
(Copenhagen/New York); le quattro Summer House da Kunlé Adeyemi – NLÉ (Amsterdam/Lagos); Barkow Leibinger (Berlin/New York); Yona Friedman (Paris); e Asif Khan (London).
