The seventh in a series of summer pavilions to be built in London’s Hyde Park by internationally acclaimed architects will be designed by Rem Koolhaas, Director of the Dutch architectural practice Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA), and Cecil Balmond, Deputy Chairman of Arup. The centrepiece of the design is a spectacular ovoid-shaped inflatable canopy that will float above the Gallery’s lawn. Made from translucent material, the structure will be illuminated from within at night. The canopy will be raised into the air or lowered to cover the amphitheatre below according to the weather. Architects of past Pavilions are Álvaro Siza and Eduardo Souto de Moura with Cecil Balmond, Arup, 2005; MVRDV with Arup, 2004 (unrealised); Oscar Niemeyer, 2003; Toyo Ito with Arup, 2002; Daniel Libeskind with Arup, 2001; and Zaha Hadid, 2000.
