Serpentine Pavilion by Francis Kéré

Serpentine Pavilion_exterior(1)

The Goethe-Institut London is proud to be supporting the Serpentine Pavilion 2017, designed by Diébédo Francis Kéré. The Berlin-based architect from Burkino Faso has designed a bold, innovative structure that brings his characteristic sense of light and life to London.

Inspired by the tree that serves as a central meeting point for life in his home town of Gando, Francis Kéré has designed a responsive Pavilion that seeks to connect its visitors to nature – and each other. An expansive roof, supported by a central steel framework, mimics a tree’s canopy, allowing air to circulate freely while offering shelter against London rain and summer heat.

There pavilion will be open to the public from 23 June to 8 October, during which time there will be a number of talks and other events at the pavilion and the Goethe-Institut.
