Frida Escobedo's Seprentine Pavilion Design is Breezy and Maze-Like

Mexico-based architect Frida Escobedo completed the layout of a secluded courtyard, located in front of the Serpentine Gallery in Kensington Gardens, London. The structure boasts skillfully arranged "walls of roofing tiles, a curving mirrored ceiling and a shallow, triangular pool of water." By mixing these elements and materials, Frida Escobedo infused motifs found in Mexican architecture.

The secluded courtyard pavilion is aesthetically characterized by a contemporary interpretation of 'celosia' — "a breeze-block wall that allows light and breeze to filter through." Frida Escobedo stacked the materials in such a way as to create an engaging and visually interesting arrangement. In addition, the facade reflects and distorts itself in "both the pool of water and the ceiling."
