Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa of Japanese architectural firm SANAA were recently selected to design the summer pavilion at London’s Serpentine Gallery. (They were also part of a 2006 list of the 10 most important buildings of the 21st century).They recently revealed their plans for the pavilion – an aluminium canopy that will mirror the surrounding areas of Hyde Park, making the environment a huge element in the very success of the design. More from the Serpentine Gallery’s website:

Sejima and Nishizawa’s Pavilion will be the architects’ first built structure in the UK and the ninth commission in the Gallery’s annual series of Pavilions, the world’s first and most ambitious architectural programme of its kind. The Pavilion will open in July on the Serpentine Gallery’s lawn, where it will remain until October.

Sejima and Nishizawa’ s pioneering buildings have created an architecture that marries aesthetic simplicity with technical complexity, defining a new architectural language, which plays with light and perception. Sought after by high-profile clients the world over, from the Louvre Museum in Lens, France, to the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York, USA, SANAA’s projects are open stages, which make visible the connection between the built structure, the users and the natural environment.
