You will find the Serpentine Art Gallery in Hyde Park. Each year an architect is commissioned to build a functional installation outside the gallery known as The Pavilion. This year the Serpentine Pavilion is designed by Bjarke Ingels Group. It is a wall that transforms from a straight line to a three dimensional space which becomes a cafe during the day and a space for events in the evening.
Alongside the Pavilion are four Summer Houses designed by four chosen architects. One condition of their choice is that the architects have not yet built a permanent building in the UK. Each of the Summer Houses was inspired by Queen Charlotte's Temple, a classical style 1734 Summer House.
Barcow Leibinger, an American German architectural practice, was inspired by another 18th cent pavilion which rotated and could show 360 deg of the park.
Kumle Adevenu's Summer House is an inverse replica of Queen Caroline's Temple
Asif Khan, a British architect, was inspired by the fact that Queen Caroline's Temple was positioned in a way that would allow it to catch the sunlight from The Serpentine Lake.
Designed by Hungerian born French architect Yona Friedman the fourth Summer House takes the form of a modular structure composedof cubes that can be disassembled and assembled in different formations and builds on the architects pioneering project from the 1950s ' Spatial City'.
