Location: Bakewell, Derbyshire, DE45 1PP, North/Central England, UK
“An enormous, curvy, mushroom-like pavilion” designed by the late architect Dame Zaha Hadid is now installed in the grounds of Chatsworth House, one of Britain’s grandest stately homes, reports The Guardian. The ‘Lilas pavilion’ is exhibited as part of ‘Sotheby’s Beyond Limits’.
The pavilion was an unexpected addition by the Serpentine Gallery back in 2007.
Rising steel prices meant the 2007 pavilion by artist Olafur Eliasson and architect Kjetil Thorsen was delayed, Zaha Hadid offered to help out.
Chatsworth House is the magnificent home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire in the Peak District. The property was remodelled to designs by Talman 1686-1707.

Sotheby’s Beyond Limits
10 Sep – 30 Oct 2016
Sotheby’s Beyond Limits has established itself as one of the most prestigious platforms for the display and sale of modern and contemporary outdoor sculpture, and a key event in the art world calendar.
The show integrates works by leading pioneers in this field into the historic garden.
At the heart of this year’s exhibition will be Zaha Hadid’s sculpturally stunning Lilas pavilion, created for the Serpentine summer party in 2007.
It is the most architecturally ambitious installation to be presented at Chatsworth to date. The show will also spotlight an enchanted installation by Cristina Iglesias, exploring the boundaries between appearance and reality.
Exhibition included with admission to the garden

The Serpentine Summer Party Installation is designed as an open air space raising 5.5m that consists of three identical tensile fabric structures or parasols arrayed around a central point. Each parasol develops sculpturally from a small articulated base to a large cantilevered diamond shape. Taking inspiration from complex natural geometries such as flower petals and leaves the three parasols overlap to create the pavilion’s main conceptual feature: complex symmetry, interweaving all-the-while without touching, allowing air, light and sound to travel through narrow gaps in a state that is both open and likewise tending toward closure.
Raised on a low platform located within an open field flanked by a row of trees just South of the Serpentine Gallery, the Serpentine Summer Party Pavilion is free standing and accessible from all sides. Accommodating movement throughout the site, the Pavilion is enigmatic. In the day it provides shading, while at night the pavilion undergoes an energetic transformation into a source of illumination. From continuous lighting around each base, light is thrown up the fabric surfaces along very thin seams that radiate about the parasols that act like corseting or the veining of flowers revealing the geometric intricacy of the pavilion and highlighting the overall architectural form in calligraphic arcs.
