Travel Back in Time with a Retrospect of the London Serpentine Gallery

Explore the history of the gallery via the photos

Individual pavilion creation
Each year, London Serpentine Gallery welcomes designers and architects from around the world who take pride of presenting their work to the visitors of the famous lawns. The project runs since 2000, and the artists have six months to think of and build their individual pavilion creation which then stands on the grass available for visitors for three months. If you are visiting London, use the chance to visit this year’s installation. For the rest of us, let us travel back through time and explore the history of the gallery via the photos below:
