Canberra needs to emulate The Serpentine

Serpentine-2ch

The Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2009 is designed by Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa of leading Japanese architecture practice SANAA. SANAA is the firm that designed the New Museum in New York, but didn’t get to design the new MCA. They currently have an installation at the Sherman.

My spy in London tells me “this year’s pavilion is a thing of beauty”.

ArtWranglers said it last year – London’s love affair with The Pavilion would be an excellent solution to the urban design misery that is the south end of Northbourne Avenue. Imagine this here! Read the full story at Artdaily, and see more pics at The Serpentine

And while we’re on the topic of London pavilions, each year the Architectural Association’s students compete to make a pavilion in Bedford Square. This year Driftwood won the prize. Envy. Want more? Go here.

Love it, Nige – but I bet it’ll be a bugger to (keep) clean!
