Jean Nouvel | Red Summer in Kensington Gardens|Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2010


Out of stock

Renowned French architect Jean Nouvel designed the Serpentine Gallery&s pavilion for 2010, and created a commanding, eye-catching all-red structure designed to mimic the moment “when the summer sun catches you full in the eyes and, as you blink, the world dissolves into red.”

Also inspired by London&s red buses and telephone boxes, this dramatic and seductive pavilion consists of a cantilevered glass wall supporting a central frame, with retractable red canvas awnings, a red rubber floor and, to accommodate its many visitors, a red café bar, red table tennis tables and red hammocks, tables and chairs.
“It&s architecture on holiday,” Nouvel has joked, also describing the pavilion as a “big sunglass.”
This similarly striking publication, designed by Nouvel, records the project in documentation, eight foldout posters and an interview with Nouvel by Julia Peyton-Jones and Hans Ulrich Obrist.
