Zaha Hadid

The office of Zaha Hadid has produced a 600m tent to house the 30th anniversary celebrations of London's Serpentine Gallery on 20 June. The tensile fabric structure was designed by architect Jim Heverin and features flat panels rather than the curves normally applied to the material. It will seat 400 around tables also designed by the practice. The structure will also host a charity auction of a specially commissioned Mini painted by Damien Hirst and other artwork.
