The curved roof tiles are horizontal, held apart on vertical poles, so the walls provide ventilation and an almost complete visual barrier. A construction which is common in the architect's home country, Mexico.
Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2018
Each summer the Serpentine Gallery commissions a pavilion as a cafe and performance space - by a renowned architect with no previous work in the United Kingdom. This year it is by Mexican Frida Escobedo. The design is a roofed courtyard, walls made of stacked roof tiles so air can blow through - a lucky choice for an unusually hot summer in London. The interior of the roof is mirrored and curve up from a centre line parallel to the Greenwich Meridian. There is also a shallow pool of water, one side parallel to the centre of the roof. The building has three courtyards, a large central one with the pool and two narrow end courtyards, one of them with a coffee and cake bar.
