MVRDV heads to the hills with pavilion plan

news

Fashionable young Dutch practice MVRDV has reinvented the concept of the pavilion with this radical scheme for the Serpentine Gallery.

The 23m-high grass-coated 'mountain' will completely cover the original gallery building in Kensington Gardens and will be supported by a steel beam frame weighing 200 tonnes.

The building, the fifth in the Serpentine Gallery's series of architectural commissions, is to open in spring 2005.
