The Serpentine Pavilion opens to the public tomorrow

Each of the five structures is designed to have a different function, with the largest set to be used as an auditorium for events and talks. On either side of the auditorium are structures containing a small library and a sound installation playing music by composer Jang Young-Gyu.

The tallest of the structures is enclosed by orange netting and contains a climbable net, while the final structure contains the pavilion’s cafe.

Named Archipelagic Void, the pavilion is Cho’s first building in the UK and is the 23rd Serpentine Pavilion.
