Frida Escobedo’s Serpentine Pavilion revealed in photography by Ste Murray

This slideshow of images offers a closer look at this year’s Serpentine Pavilion, designed by Mexican architect Frida Escobedo, which was unveiled yesterday in Kensington Gardens, London.

Escobedo’s pavilion is framed by walls of concrete tiles, designed as a reinterpretation of the perforated “celosia” wall that is common in Mexican architecture. It also features a triangular pool of water and a curving mirrored ceiling, which create distorted reflection.

The walls are designed to run parallel with two different axes: the facade of the Serpentine Gallery behind, and the Prime Meridian. The aim was to allow the building to be site-specific in its current location, as well as in its unknown future location.

These images by Irish photographer Ste Murray offer a look both inside and outside the structure, and also reveal the view from above.
