MVRDV designed a pavilion that would relate not only to the Serpentine Gallery but also the park itself, by extending both. While previous Serpentine pavilions have been located on the lawn in front of the gallery building, MVRDV's design proposes absorbing the gallery, so as to forge a stronger relationship with the pavilion, and at the same time transform it into a mysterious, hidden space. The pavilion literally extends the existing lawn over the gallery creating an accessible, recreational hill in the park.
