This year’s Serpentine Gallery will be unveiled in June and open until October. The 2023 design is by Lebanese-born, Paris-based architect Lina Ghotmeh. It comprises a timber pavilion sheltering a low circular table designed, Ghotmeh says, to “focus visitors’ attention on sustenance and sustainable living and our relationship to nature and the Earth”.
This prestigious commission, which began in 2000 with Dame Zaha Hadid, has presented the first completed UK structures by some of the biggest names and emerging talents in international architecture. The Pavilion, based in London’s Hyde Park, has evolved over the years as a participatory public and artistic platform for the Serpentine’s innovative, experimental, interdisciplinary, community and family programmes.
