MVRDV heads to the hills with pavilion plan


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.
