“JIAKUN Architects’ Serpentine Pavilion Beijing takes inspiration from Confucianism with an architecture that is a physical representation of the traditional pursuit of Junzi,” explains the Serpentine Pavilion in a press release. “The design is characterised by a the figure of the Archer, in the form of a curved cantilever beam that incorporates the forces of elasticity through cables stretched between steel plates. Although modern architecture in Beijing has developed a series of powerful techniques to fight the external forces of fierce winds and unpredictable earthquakes, the Pavilion’s integral structures aims – like the Tai Chi Master – to conquer the harness of those forces with softness.” JIAKUN Architects’ design was chosen by an 8-person selection committee that included: * Hans Ulrich Obrist, artistic director of the Serpentine Galleries * Yana Peel, CEO of the Serpentine Galleries * Sir David Adjaye, trustee of the Serpentine Galleries and founder of Adjaye Associates * David Glover, CEO of Intelligent Engineering and technical advisor to the Serpentine Pavilion Commission * Raymond Chow and James Robinson, executive directors of Hongkong Land * Wang Jianwei, artist * Philip Dodd, director of Made in China The inaugural Serpentine Pavilion Beijing will launch in May 2018 and will remain on display at WF Central.
