House designed byÂ Barkow Leibinger 2016
The 2016 Serpentine Summer Pavilion was designed by Barkow Leibinger. The pavilion was organized as four bands of structures. The first beginning level was with benches attached to the ground, and then was a band of three C-shaped walls crowned by a third and fourth level which forms a roof that cantilevers a tree-like canopy over the smaller footprint. Its landscape was also an interesting design, which will analyze later.
As this pavilion consisted of five main layers and has various curved shapes, it was quite challenging as the first module. The main problem needs to be solved is the correct angle of each curving shape. Thus, the use of four elevations help to define the right angles, the height and the width of the pavilion.
