The first images have been published of the Serpentine Gallery’s 2016 pavilion programme; an annual programme which first started in the year 2000.
This year's programme features a range of summer houses designed by international architects. The centrepiece has been created by Bjarke Ingels Group and it resembles a 'mountain of ice cubes’ stretching across the London gallery’s lawn. The structure will be created from a series of box-like fibreglass frames stacked in a brick-wall fashion.
This year, for the first time, the main pavilion commission will be supported by four smaller summer houses in the grounds of the Serpentine Gallery - designed by a range of other architects.
The Bjarke Ingels structure will include a cafe and events space during the day with a programme of arts programmes in the evenings.
The Serpentine Pavilion will be open from 10th June 2016 through to 9th Oct 2016.
