The Pavilion at the Serpentine Gallery

Back to lovely, sunny (as soon as my foot stept on English earth the sun came out) London and I am excited to soak up some culture and catch up on all that I have missed while abroad. I was really curious to finally see the scarlet red summer construction that was under development in June. This year, the Hyde Park gallery has invited the French architect Jean Nouvel to design a structure, which he has rendered in pillar-box red, to contrast with the lush green lawns of Hyde Park. It is an interesting place, which consists of a café and some more space to relax under the numerous trees and enjoy the sunny summer days (or at least the rest of them). Well, it does have a roof made of steel. No wonder Nouvel has won the Pritzker price.
