Sunday 03 July 2011
The opening of the 11th annual Serpentine Gallery Pavilion on Friday marked what has become a celebrated event in London's summer diary.
Starting in 2000, the structures designed by top architects such as Zaha Hadid, Daniel Libeskind, Toyo Ito, Oscar Niemeyer, Rem Koolhaas, Frank Gehry and Alvaro Siza (above) have been erected next to the gallery for a three-month period.
Serpentine Gallery Pavilions includes interviews with Serpentine Director Julian Peyton-Jones and Exhibitions Director Hans-Ulrich Obrist; descriptions of the 10 pavilions, illustrated by the architects' drawings; and photos of the finished works.
