in addition to the 16th annual pavilion designed by bjarke ingels, four summer houses realized by kunlé adeyemi, barkow leibinger, yona friedman, and asif khan form part of 2016’s ‘serpentine architecture programme’. the temporary structures are inspired by queen caroline’s temple, a nearby classical style summer house built in 1734. rather than using models, drawings, and plans, the newly commissioned programme presents an exhibition of contemporary international architecture in the built form. as with previous editions of the pavilion, each of the five architects — aged between 36 and 93 — have not completed a permanent structure in the UK. see more on BIG’s pavilion here, and read about each of the four summer houses in more detail below.
