The Annual World of Interiors Party
Out And About With Janine Stone & Co.
It was to the annual World of Interiors party last night held at the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion designed, this year by the Danish Architect, Bjarke Ingels.
Bjarke’s firm’s Serpentine Gallery Pavilion opened in London on 10 June 2016, and is a huge undulating structure composed of thousands of fibreglass boxes stacked on top of each other.
BIG’s Rune Hansen, who was project manager for the project, explains that the firm saw the pavilion as an opportunity to test what it is possible to create with its fibreglass material.
“To build a pavilion like this for us as an architecture office is extremely interesting,” he explains. “It is kind of a lab where we can test materials – the visual aesthetics as well as structural conditions.”
Bjarke Ingels is also the architect for ‘No 2 World Trade Center’. Which when completed, will be located on the east side of Greenwich Street, across from the original location of the Twin Towers.
