:BIG's Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2016 is made up of thousands of translucent fibreglass blocks, which are stacked on top of each other to form a wall that appears to have been pulled apart. The pavilion, which is located outside the Serpentine Gallery in London's Kensington Gardens, appears rectangular when viewed side-on. Its curving silhouette is revealed from other angles. The pavilion also changes from opaque to see-through, depending on the viewing angle. "When you look in one direction it's completely transparent – it's an orthogonal grid of very light frames," Ingels says. "But when you look in the other direction it becomes this undulating opaque cave." He adds: "So it's both opaque and transparent, orthogonal and organic. It's trying to combine all of these elements."
