Serpentine Pavilion

designed by Herzon & de Meuron and Ai Weiwei

The inner shape and volume underneath the flat pool of water are defined by the footprints of all the previous pavilions.

"Their shape varies: circular, long and narrow, dots and also large, constructed hollows that have been filled in… These remains testify to the existence of the former Pavilions and their greater or lesser intervention in the natural environment of the park."
