The Pavilion @ Serpentine Galleries

Every year Londoners are graced with a new architectural delight. This year's Pavillion and Serpentine Galleries was no different. As you walk up to the monolothic structure you will come across the shaded summer houses created by Asif Khan, Kunlé Adeyemi, and others. They have all in various ways been inspired by a Neo-Classical temple in the same area and provide the perfect respite as well as create some awe inspiring lines at high noon. 

The showstopper here is Bjarke Ingels' undulating structure of fibreglass boxes. From the outside it looks like a mountain. Inside, a cave. Walking around this and seeing it change from opaque to transparent was brilliantly nauseating. What's more, visitors are allowed to sit and climb the structure and there is a cafe with seating inside.
