    Gallery: Iwan Baan captures BIG's 2016 Serpentine Pavilion and 4 adjacent Summerhouses

    Bjark Ingels Group’s 2016 Serpentine Gallery Pavilion has opened in London alongside four smaller "summer houses" designed  by Kunlé Adeyemi - NLÉ, Barkow Leibinger, Yona Friedman and Asif Khan.

    BIG’s pavilion appears as an ‘unzipped wall’ that transforms from straight line at its entry into a three-dimensional space at its rear. It was developed from the starting point of a single brick wall, which then ‘unzips’ to create the internal space for the pavilion's program. It’s made from a series of box-like fibreglass frames stacked on top of each other, in a pattern based on a common brick wall.

    "We have attempted to design a structure that embodies multiple aspects that are often perceived as opposites," explains BIG in their description of the design.

    “A structure that is free-form yet rigorous, modular yet sculptural, both transparent and opaque, both solid box and blob."
