Zaha Hadid designs the fabric parasols at the Serpentine Gallery, designed to shelter guests at the summer party 

The illuminated shelters were commissioned at the eleventh hour when it became clear that artist Olafur Eliasson, the man behind the giant sun installation at Tate Modern, was not going to be ready in time for the event. Hadid stepped in and in just six weeks these 5.5 meter tall fabric parasols were assembled and will create shelter for guests at the gallery's annual summer party. Eliasson's pavilion will now open in August and stay up to coincide with the Freeze Art Fair in October.
