The 2015 Serpentine Pavilion is a trippy public structure that sets up a sort of choose-your-own-adventure experience thanks to its multi-orifice design. People can enter it from a multitude of entrances, which allows them to enjoy the public structure differently every time. Yet at its core, the Serpentine Pavilion is a kaleidoscopic design that Fast Co Design likens to "rainbow poop."
Designed by Selgascano, the rainbow public structure is based in Kensington Gardens in London. The firm shares, "We sought a way to allow the public to experience architecture through simple elements: structure, light, transparency, shadows, lightness, form, sensitivity, change, surprise, color and materials. Each entrance allows for a specific journey through the space." It also glows at night to provide an even more unique experience when traveling through it.
