Serpentine in Space

The Serpentine pavilion, like the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square, is a source of constantly changing inspiration and interest. This year’s design by Chilean architect Smiljan Radic resembles a space pod, or maybe a puff ball, which glows at night. It will hosted events and a café and opened on June 26 2014.

Radic said that his design is in the tradition of romantic follies of earlier centuries, but will also look excitingly futuristic, like an alien space pod that has come to rest in Hyde Park.
