renowned photographers hufton + crow have shared with us images of smiljan radic’s serpentine pavilion, which opened earlier this year. the series examines the structural qualities of the scheme, and documents the temporary building during the serpentine summer party.

 

the design is envisioned as a flexible and multi-purpose social space that also houses a café. during its four month stay in the park, visitors will be encouraged to interact with the pavilion through a variety of different events. on selected friday evenings, the structure will form a stage for the galleries’ park nights series, with eight site-specific functions bringing together art, poetry, music, film, literature and theory.
