Junior Studio analysis of key terms of the 2009 Serpentine Pavilion. 2013
Ephemerality, transparency, and lightness, three words used to describe Sanaa's Serpentine Pavilion, are examined in this playful study. Various materials are used in seventeen models of the pavilion that demonstrate these effects in some way. The models are then categorized and ranked based on their conformity to the desired effects, revealing surprising relationships based in texture, reflectiveness, and adhesion.
