In the heart of London, between the trees of Royal Park, that nests this original cocoon. Fruit of the work of the Spanish architects José Selgas and Lucia Cano (Selgascano for the close friends), this structure is used as a pavilion by the Serpentine gallery today. If the thinking about this structure presents a certain depth, the artists having been inspired by Londoners' ceaseless goes - and come, the work of the material was also at the heart of their conception. The structure is formed by a double-layered shell of colored ETFE, giving it this look of "soap bubble".Both opaque and transparent, those layers of polymer allow the light to pass, transforming the structure into an odd firefly in the evening.
