This summer the Serpentine presents the 2011 Pavilion designed by world-renowned Swiss architect Peter Zumthor. This year’s Pavilion is the 11th commission in the Gallery’s annual series. It is the architect’s first completed building in the UK, providing visitors with a tranquil haven for rest and reflection. Zumthor’s Pavilion centres around a hortus conclusus, a hidden inner garden, conceived by award-winning Dutch landscape designer Piet Oudolf. Exterior and interior walls with staggered doorways offer multiple paths for visitors to follow, gently guiding them to the inner garden. The covered walkways and seating surrounding this central space create a serene, contemplative environment from which visitors may look onto the richly planted sunlit garden, the heart and focus of the building.

Architect: Peter Zumthor, CH–Haldenstein
