Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2008 by Frank Gehry

The Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2008 will give London the first example of Frank Gehry’s spectacular architecture. The highly articulated structure – designed and engineered in collaboration with Arup – comprises large timber planks and multiple glass planes that soar and swoop at different angles to create a dramatic multi-dimensional space. Part-amphitheatre, part-promenade, these seemingly random elements will make a transformative place for reflection and relaxation by day, and discussion and performance by night.(to find out more..)

hahaha... same here... i dont see a point of these arbituary arrangements :( in my opinion, i feel it's rather dangerous. besides that, i didnt like the combination of wood and metal in this building... sorry =P

afterrabbit said...

yes chii, the material combination seems awkward, at least in this model they don't seem to mix well or complementing each other.
Why should the steel rods be there on top of the pavilion??
It's too random & messy.

To have a better understanding of the relationship between the materials I suggest you to check out the construction photo gallery
