Serpentine Pavilion

Definately worth a visit on a barmy Summer evening, the Serpentine Pavilion is refreshed annually with a new architectural commission. The centrepiece of this design is a spectacular ovoid-shaped inflatable canopy that floats above the Gallery's lawn. Made from translucent material, the structure will be illuminated from within at night. The canopy will be raised into the air or lowered to cover the amphitheatre below according to the weather.
