The design team responsible for the celebrated Beijing National Stadium, built for the 2008 Olympic Games, has come together again in London in 2012 for the Serpentine Gallery's acclaimed annual commission. Presented as part of the London 2012 Festival, the culmination of the Cultural Olympiad, the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2012 is Herzog & de Meuron and Ai Weiwei's first collaborative built structure in the UK.
In conjunction with the design of the Pavilion, the team have created a distinct Limited Edition, intrinsically linked with the different phases of the architectural design process.
By tracing and bringing together the footprint and foundations of the former Pavilions, the architects have carved an astonishing landscape, capturing hints of each structure in their final Pavilion design. This terrain is captured in the form of a Limited Edition hand-sculpted porcelain landscape, which has been produced using traditional methods in Jingdezhen, China. Poignantly memorialising the history of this unique architectural commission, this elegant Edition pays homage to the constructed realities encountered by the architects when conceiving of this year’s Pavilion.
