2001 Serpentine Gallery Pavilion by Daniel Libeskind with Arup

(August 24, 2001 Google Earth imagery)

‘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

With references to an origami figure, Eighteen Turns was a different kind of temporary structure. Highlighting the beauty of the Gardens and their connection to the Gallery, 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.
