Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2000

Zaha Hadid Architects as Architects

Zaha Hadid, the highly acclaimed Iraqi-British architect, designed the inaugural pavilion for the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion series - an ambitious programme that has since become a highlight of the design and architecture calendar. Zaha Hadid's structure radically reinvented the accepted idea of a tent or a marquee. It took the form of a triangulated roof structure spanning an impressive internal space of 600sq metres by using a steel primary structure. A folding form of angular flat planes extending to the ground gave an illusion of solidity while at the same time creating a variety of internal spaces.
