Royal Gold Medal 2013 Lecture - Peter Zumthor

Architecture: Royal Gold Medal 2013 Lecture: Peter Zumthor: “..It’s a rarity that the architecture community is presented a chance to indulge in a Peter Zumthor lecture. Often referred to a architecture’s reclusive “man of mystery”, the Swiss legend has produced a handful of projects so eloquently designed that they have captured the attention of the world. In honor of his mastery, RIBA awarded Zumthor with the institute’s prestigious Royal Gold Medal in February. In this video, he gives the 2013 Royal Gold Medal Lecture at the RIBA, focused on the theme of Presence in Architecture..”

* Architecture: Sou Fujimoto designs Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2013

Sou Fujimoto designs Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2013

Architecture:  Sou Fujimoto designs Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2013: “..Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto has been named as the designer of this year’s Serpentine Gallery Pavilion, which will be a cloud-like structure made from a lattice of steel poles..The semi-transparent pavilion will occupy 350 square-metres of lawn outside the London gallery. Two entrances will lead inside the structure, where staggered terraces will provide seating for a central cafe..Sou Fujimoto describes his design as “an architectural landscape” where “the vivid greenery of the surrounding plant life [is] woven together with a constructed geometry”..”The delicate quality of the structure, enhanced by its semi-transparency, will create a geometric, cloud-like form, as if it were mist rising from the undulations of the park,” said Fujimoto. “From certain vantage points, the pavilion will appear to merge with the classical structure of the Serpentine Gallery, with visitors suspended in space.” The temporary pavilion will open to the public on 8 June and will remain in Kensington Gardens until 20 October..Sou Fujimoto is the third Japanese architect to accept the annual unpaid commission, which is one of the most highly sought-after small projects in world architecture and goes to a major architect who hasn’t yet built in the UK. Toyo Ito designed the pavilion in 2002, while SANAA followed in 2009..Last year’s pavilion was a cork-lined archaeological dig created by Herzog & de Meuron with Ai Weiwei, who was forbidden to leave China at the time..”

* Architecture: Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2012 by Herzog & de Meuron and Ai Weiwei

Posted by the editors on Tuesday, 8 May 2012

Architecture: Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2012 by Herzog & de Meuron and Ai Weiwei: “..The Serpentine Gallery in London has unveiled plans by Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron and Chinese artist Ai Weiwei for this summer’s Serpentine Gallery Pavilion: they’ll conduct an archaeological dig to find traces of past pavilions on the site then line the resulting trenches with cork..The plan involves excavating down to groundwater level, revealing buried traces of the past eleven annual pavilions and creating a well at the bottom that will also collect rainwater..A pool of water will also cover the surface of the circular roof, supported just 1.4 metres above the ground by twelve columns that represent pavilions past and present. It will be possible to drain this water down into the well to create an elevated viewing platform or dance floor..”  Another marvelous Serpentine Pavilion..

Jonathan Glancey has written a short, interesting article entitled “Peter Zumthor unveils secret garden for Serpentine pavilion” in the Art & Design section of the Guardian, looking at Pritzker Prize architect Peter Zumthor’s design for the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion, a contemplative garden created by the Dutch designer Piet Oudolf, enclosed by a minimalist timber structure wrapped with a scrim and coated with black paste mixed with sand.  The eleventh of its kind, precedent pavilions have been designed by, among others, Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, Daniel Liebeskind, and in 2010, by Jean Nouvel.  A review of the the designs, beginning in 2000, can be seen in Rowan Moore’s article entitled “Ten years of the Serpentine’s star pavilions” once again in the Art & Design section of the Guardian.
