Gehry’s Plans for Serpentine Gallery Unveiled

0328gehryserp.jpg

You’ll recall that back in January, we reported that Frank Gehry had been awarded the commission to design the hallmark building for this year’s Serpentine Galley in London’s Hyde Park. Now plans and photos have started to get released, giving people a peek at what’s to come this July. And living up to Serpentine’s always weird legacy, Gerhy has made a doozie, creating something that looks like the Acropolis of Athens after an earthquake. Seriously, don’t let your loved ones get anywhere near this thing if you ever want to see them again — it looks like it wants, nay, needs blood. Here’s a few images and a bit of info from the Times:

The structure, which will open in July, comprises large timber planks and multiple glass planes set at different angles…

…The Canadian-born architect, now based in the US, has never had a structure built in England before. He said: “The pavilion is designed as a wooden timber structure that acts as an urban street running from the park to the existing gallery. Inside the pavilion, glass canopies are hung from the wooden structure to protect the interior from wind and rain and provide for shade during sunny days.”
