Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2014: Smiljan Radic A squashed moon, translucent shell, or alien space pod? See what you think of Chilean architect Smiljan Radic's design for the 2014 Serpentine Pavilion when the temporary structure goes up on the Serpentine Gallery lawn this summer. His design, a translucent domed structure of white fibreglass, rests on a bed of huge rocks, giving the sensation that the entire shell is floating. The gallery's annual Serpentine Gallery Pavilion project is always an interesting prospect, challenging a world-renowned architect to create a structure which temporarily occupies the lawn in front of the gallery and this year's commission will "attract the attention of passers-by, like lamps attracting moths", according to its architect. Guardian critic Oliver Wainwright pronounced it, "one of the strangest structures Kensington Gardens will have ever seen".
