Bjarke Ingels designs this years Serpentine Pavilion 2016 a Danish architect. http://www.big.dk/#projects
What immediately comes to mind when looking at this structure is a church.
I know for sure that I'm not the first person to say that. On a personal level I instantly find that quite intriguing. The pavilion is known as an all welcoming space for people to visit and experience, to gather, to sit, to pass through. There's a similarity in function here.
The design itself drew my attention to the finer details and the simplicity.
It started with the brick form these individual hollow cubes have been made from extruded fibre glass. Allowing light to transmit throughout the interior space. Cleverly stacked creating this undulating curve from the base up into the middle. There is a wonderful sense of air, possibly because green parkland outside can still be seen through the hollow centres.
As you look up, the two walls appear to conjoin or fuse together it's simply a visual illusion created by the angles and positioning of the hollow cubes and the way the light hits the edges.
The day I visited was beaming with sunshine my experience was a bright light and uplifting space that fluctuated from transparent to solid depending where you stand it was in a constant state of flux.
