Serpentine Gallery announce today, Friday 24 April 2020, the 2020 Pavilion commission has been extended through to Summer 2021. This year the much anticipated annual pavillion commission was awarded to Counterspace, a Johannesburg-based collaborative architectural studio, directed by an all-woman team of Sumayya Vally, Amina Kaskar and Sarah de Villiers.
For the first time since the annual architecture programme was founded 20 years ago, the commission has been extended.
Counterspace, directed by Sumayya Vally, Sarah de Villiers and Amina Kaskar, will collaborate with the Serpentine on a series of off-site and online research projects throughout 2020, which will culminate with the opening of the Pavilion in Summer 2021.
The Serpentine’s public programme of live performance, discussion, food and family engagement in the Pavilion, as well as the annual fundraiser, The Summer Party, will also move to 2021.
