The summer has now arrived and it comes packed full of innovative and creative pop ups challenging contemporary design and architecture. Here are our top 3 sights you cannot miss.
After opening yesterday, the Serpentine Pavilion is sure to be a popular hot-spot this weekend. Architectural duo SelgasCano are responsible for this years installation; creating a labyrinthine, a ‘translucent whorl partially inspired by the convoluted connectivity of the London Underground.’ Personally, we’re not sold on the slightly half hearted rabbit warren of colour, but you’ll have to decide for yourselves.
With the end of June fast approaching, this is your last chance to see the two pavilions installed for this years London Festival Architecture. Built by Irish Architecture Practices (Red Pavilion) collaboration between TAKA, Clancy Moore and Steve Larkin Architect and (Yellow Pavilion) Hall McKnight.
Located in bustling Kings Cross, both installations have been designed for the public to interact and engage with architecture. Showing until 30th June.
Carsten Holler’s latest exhibition at the Hayward Gallery has proven popular over recent weeks. Holler has devoted the space to creating a giant playground for adults and kids alike. The exhibition is designed to embrace the visitors themselves as part of the performance; by letting the audience make the decisions, they take a key part of their experience home with it.
Highly recommend this to anyone looking for something light hearted to do this weekend.
