Summer Pavilions

It’s the last few day to catch the Driftwood Pavilion by the Architecture Association, so if you haven’t had a chance to head down to Bedford Square do it before the end of this week! Designed by students from Unit 2 of the prestigious Architecture school, it was originally based on a concept by 3rd year student Danecia Sibingo. The pavilion is the fourth in the annual AA Summer series, to learn more about it and past projects visit -

Also launched this month was the Annual Summer Pavilion by the Serpentine Gallery, Kensington Gardens. This commission by the gallery is awarded to architects who have never built in the UK before and started back in 2000 with Zaha Hadid. This years offering is designed by Tokyo based Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa, otherwise known as SANAA.

The pavilion will act as an extension of the gallery space and will host a number of events every Friday night under the title ‘Park Nights’ including poetry, performances and film screenings all the way to the end of September.
