Serpentine Gallery's summer pavilion unveiled

7th July 2010

The Serpentine Gallery's tenth summer pavilion has been unveiled and is expected to attract thousands of visitors.

Part of the London art gallery's architectural series, the angular red structure was designed by French architect Jean Nouvel.

The bright red, temporary, translucent structure will be open to the public until October 17th and is Nouvel's first completed building in the UK.

Speaking at the opening of the summer pavilion, which will host a cafe during the day and performances by candlelight at night, Nouvel said: 'When I see the red sun through the ceiling I am happy.'

After working on 200 major architecture projects around the globe, Nouvel was awarded the Pritzker Prize in 2008, earning him the highest honour attainable in the sector.

His recent projects include the Copenhagen Concert Hall, the Genoa Exhibition Centre and the Musee du quai Branly, which is located in Paris.
