NEWS

Rem Koolhaas' eagerly awaited designs for this year's Serpentine Pavilion have been released.

The centrepiece of the Office for Metropolitan Architecture founder's design is an ovoid inflatable canopy floating above a walled enclosure. The enclosure will be used for daily cultural events. Made from translucent material, the canopy will be illuminated from within at night, and will be raised and lowered according to the weather. Koolhaas worked on the designs with structural engineer Cecil Balmond.
