Serpentine Pavilion, Hyde Park, london

Inspired by his roots in Burkina Faso, Francis Kéré’s pavilion is a tree-like space in which to enjoy all weathers and ‘meet your dream’. “The tree was always the most important place in my village,” he says, describing the inspiration for his design. “It is where people come together under the shade of its branches to discuss, a place to decide matters, about love, about life. I want the pavilion to serve the same function: a simple open shelter to create a sense of freedom and community.”

The absolutely stunning pavilion can be found in Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park during the Summer of 2017. I went to see it during the opening weekend and was lucky enough to get one of my images featured in Time Out London the following week;
