Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2012: Herzog & de Meuron and Ai Weiwei The world-renowned architect pairing of Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron and Chinese conceptual artist Ai Weiwei will create the 2012 Serpentine Gallery Pavilion , the twelfth commission in the annual series. The design team behind the highly acclaimed Beijing National Stadium, the winner of a prestigious RIBA Lubetkin Prize, will reunite for their first ever collaborative structure built in the UK. This year's Pavilion takes visitors beneath the lawns of the Serpentine to explore the hidden history of the eleven previous Pavilions, as well as the twelfth. The Serpentine Gallery Pavilion is the most ambitious architectural project of its kind and will be presented as part of the London 2012 Festival .

 

About Serpentine Gallery
