Project Description


Highlighting the beauty of Kensington Gardens and their connection to the gallery, Daniel Libeskind's striking design for the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2001, entitled Eighteen Turns, was created from sheer metallic planes assembled in a dynamic sequence.
Clad in aluminium panels creating brilliant reflections of light, the structure revealed an entirely new perspective of the greenery of the park and the brick building of the gallery. Eighteen Turns was a special place of discovery, intimacy and gathering.
'Temporary structures like Eighteen Turns are great additions to our parks and cityscapes; they can offer us adventurous, alternative and even radical impressions of what a new architecture might be.' -- The Guardian
