Each year, London's Serpentine Gallery releases a temporary pavilion designed by a cutting edge architect. The 2007 pavilion, designed by Oafur Eliasson, has just been unveiled.
The Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson, known for being the artist who decked Tate Modern's entrance hall with a blazing sun in 2003, revealed his plans to create the pavilion as a giant snail shaped building in London's Hyde Park.
The pavilion which Eliasson drew up with Norwegian architect Kjetil Thorsen, known for designing the new Bibliotheca Alexandrina, is a timber-sheathed structure resembling a spinning top. Visitors will be able to go up two levels on a spiraling ramp and peer down at a central arena in the pavilion.
This gallery shows some of the winning Serpentine Gallery Pavilions from past years.
