CURATING LUXURY FOR THE DISCERNING TRAVELLER

Serpentine Galleries feature Junya Ishigami

Serpentine Galleries feature Junya Ishigami

Since 2000, the Serpentine Galleries in Kensington Gardens have invited some of the world’s most respected architects to design a temporary summer installation in the form of a Pavilion on the galleries’ lawn. The first was Zaha Hadid and now the 19th to take up the gauntlet is the award-winning Japanese architect, Junya Ishigami, whose designs challenge traditional architectural conventions while reflecting nature. For this project, he has taken roofs as his inspiration and slate as his predominant material to design a structure that appears to have grown out of the lawn. While you’re there, make the five-minute walk over the Long Water bridge to The Arch, by the British sculptor Henry Moore. This 6m-high stone piece was given to the nation by the artist and frames a view of Kensington Palace.
