Chilean architect Smiljan Radic has designed a semi-translucent, cylindrical structure that resembles a shell resting on large quarry stones for the latest iteration of the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion.
The 350 square metre work has its roots in the architect’s earlier portfolio, particularly The Castle of the Selfish Giant, which was inspired by the Oscar Wilde story.
