The Serpentine Gallery Pavilion has annually put the skill and imagination of some of the world’s best architects on public display.  Each year an architect who has never before completed a UK building is invited to create a temporary Pavilion that can be used as a café by day and a forum for learning, debate and entertainment at night.

For over ten years Stanhope was an adviser to the project, ensuring the unusual creations can be realised in practice.
