Toyo Ito has joined forces with Arup to design this year's summer pavilion on the lawns of London's Serpentine Gallery. He is the third world-class architect to take up the challenge, following Zaha Hadid in 2000 and Daniel Libeskind with Arup in 2001.Painted white steel sheets will be welded together to create the main structure - the design of which is based on an algorithm and resembles a ziggurat. The shapes created in the roof and walls will be filled alternately with glass and white aluminium panels.
