See the 2012 Serpentine Gallery Pavilion

Your author is rather a fan of architecture, and as such the annual erection of the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion, beside the Gallery in Kensington Gardens, is always a highlight. This year is the twelfth time a Pavilion has been erected, and the 2012 version was designed by Herzog & de Meuron and Ai Weiwei.

This year's Pavilion is, we are told, a reflection on previous constructions, with eleven columns representing one for each previous pavilion. The Pavilion offers visitors the opportunity to sink beneath the Gallery lawn, whilst protecting them with a roof which appears to hover 1.5 metres above the ground.
