It’s that time of year again when the Serpentine Galleries unveil their latest architectural marvel, and we’re excited to give you the inside scoop – keep reading to find out why!

The 23rd Serpentine Pavilion

The 23rd Serpentine Pavilion, designed by talented architect Minsuk Cho of Mass Studies, has given a fresh perspective to the concept of space and adaptable structures. We here at SPS Technology are especially proud of this unveiling as our CEO, David Glover, returned as Technical Consultant to the Serpentine Gallery’s team again this year! 

Minsuk’s installation, Archipelagic Void, comprises five ‘islands’, each with its own unique size and shape. These sustainable structures are built mostly from timber and are supported by identical footings that adapt to the garden site’s slightly sloping typography. These islands radiate from a circular void in the middle and act as ‘nodes’ in the lawn, as described by Minsuk Cho. They connect to the Serpentine South gallery and the Park’s pedestrian networks, offering an incredible view from all angles. Interestingly, this layout also pays homage to Minsuk’s cultural roots, as traditional Korean houses often have a madang or open courtyard in the centre.

We encourage everyone to take the time to experience this year’s Pavilion by Minsuk Cho and the summer art program at the Serpentine Galleries.

Minsuk’s Archipelagic Void installation is a brilliant combination of art, architecture and sustainability – something we at SPS Technology are very passionate about. It has been an honour to have taken part in this innovative project with such incredible talent.
