Herzog & de Meuron Team With Ai Weiwei To Design New Serpentine Pavilion

Designs have been unveiled for the 2012 Serpentine Pavilion. An annual impermanent build, the Pavilion is designed by an architect without a major building in the UK. This year's selection is a banger, bringing the combined forces of Herzog & de Meuron and Ai Weiwei together for the first time since the Birdcage at the Beijing Olympics. The trio are preparing a magnificent semi-subterranean affair, which promises to be among the great Olympic structures (though only tangentially related) of 2012. Click the thumbs to view the design.
