Aecom has released timelapse footage of construction of the 2016 Serpentine Pavilion in London’s Hyde Park.
The main pavilion is designed by architect Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) and engineering consultants AKT II. It signifies an “unzipped wall” and is one of the tallest pavilions built on the site to date.
This year an additional four summer houses have also been built around the 18th century Queen Caroline’s Temple, a short walk away from the main pavilion itself. The four very different structures have each been designed by different architects – Kunlé Adeyemi, Barco Leibinger, Yona Friedman and Asif Khan – with consultant Aecom carrying out the structural engineering.
The pavilion and summer houses are open all summer and are due to close in October.
