Serpentine Pavilion architect 2008 : Frank Gehry

This spectacular structure, designed and engineered in collaboration with Arup, was the first built project in England by legendary architect Frank Gehry. Anchored by four massive steel columns, the Pavilion was composed of large timber planks and a complex network of overlapping glass planes that created a dramatic, multi-dimensional space.

Frank Gehry and his team took inspiration for the 2008 Pavilion from a variety of sources including the elaborate wooden catapults designed by Leonardo da Vinci as well as the striped walls of summer beach huts. Part-amphitheatre, part-promenade, these seemingly random elements make a transformative place for reflection and relaxation by day, and discussion and performance by night.

The Serpentine Gallery Pavilion series, which entered its ninth year with Gehry’s structure, is the world’s first and most ambitious architectural programme of its kind, and is one of the most anticipated events in the international design calendar.
