The coffee bar is visible just inside on the left, but at the time was covered in plastic sheets as rain had been falling through the openwork walls above.
Serpentine Pavilion 2016

The Serpentine Pavilion, designed by the Danish Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), is designed as an ‘unzipped wall’ as if two layers of bricks are pulled apart to form a space between them. The bricks of the walls are fibreglass extrusions, open at the ends, so that from the side there is a view through the wall. This also allows wind and rain to whistle through, making the space within liable to get wet. The pavilion by day houses a café and free family activities and by night becomes a space for the Serpentine’s programme of performing works.
