The Serpentine Pavilion 2014

It was not the best day to visit Smiljan Radic’s interpretation of the Serpentine Pavilion today. The rain was pretty much constant and the light was dim, but I did manage to take a few photos and have a good look around. I wasn’t expecting to find a cafe inside the Pavilion, but I hadn’t actually checked out the official website before my visit. The crowd there seemed to be made up of a mixture of people sheltering from the rain under this bizarre structure, people who can’t go more than 30 minutes without needing to visit a coffee shop and those who headed there to check out Pavilion number 14, trying to decide if they like it or not.

I don’t really like it. I quite like the idea, but the waxy material used didn’t look too great up close which ruined it for me. The wacky light inside was pretty cool though.
