Serpentine Sackler Gallery by Zaha Hadid Architects

The new Serpentine extension is the office's first predominantly tensile structure realised. The steel outer ring surrounding the space waves down to the ground for support and up in the air for openings. Inside, the 'scoop' columns bring natural light in and hold the high point of the tensile fabric. The double layered fabric stretches effortlessly in its naturally found form creating a dynamic, playful roof/ceiling scape.
