:The 2021 Serpentine Pavilion, designed by Johannesburg-based practice Counterspace, opens to the public in London’s Hyde Park on Friday, June 11. This year’s design pays homage to community spaces across London by translating real architectural elements into the final structure. The pavilion was originally set to open in the summer of 2020, however, due to the coronavirus pandemic, Counterspace’s commission was extended to two years. Highlighting the importance of spaces where people can gather, interact and connect, the pavilion feels particularly poignant following a year of isolation and social distancing. The pavilion references locations across London such as markets, bookshops and local cultural institutions with particular relevance to migrant communities. Pieces of existing buildings are abstracted, spliced and superimposed into one architectural collage, which is accompanied by a soundscape amplifying the stories and sounds of London’s lost spaces. The pavilion will be on view in Kensington Gardens from June 11 to October 17, 2021. Fragments of the pavilion will also occupy four places of community importance across the city, with the goal of facilitating gatherings and impromptu interactions.
