Sepentine Gallery Pavilion: Frank Gehry, London 2008



The intent of Gehry’s project is to define and urban street from the park to the existing gallery. Terraced seating and over-all form provides a fostering sensibility to the space. 4 large steel columns enclosed by large timber planks defines the structure. integration of seating and hanging glass canopies define the space. the hanging canopies protect the “audience” from water,wind, and sun conditions. the space doubles as a processional space and also an amphitheater.
