Each summer the Serpentine invites an internationally renowned architect to create his or her first structure in. England.  The selection made by Serpentine Artistic Director Hans Ulrich Obrist and CEO Yana Peel together with advisors David Adjaye and Richard Rogers, is led by the Serpentine’s core curatorial thinking.  The aim is to choose architects who consistently extended the boundaries of contemporary architectural practice and to introduce these practitioners to wider audiences.  The brief is to design a 300-square-metre Pavilion that is used as a café and meeting place by day and an entertainment at night.
