来自甘多的优秀建筑师Diébédo Francis Kéré设计了蛇形展厅2017。以简洁又胆大创新的结构形式，赋予肯辛顿花园光与生命的特质。
“Diébédo Francis Kéré, the award-winning architect from Gando, Burkino Faso, has designed the Serpentine Pavilion 2017, responding to the brief with a bold, innovative structure that brings his characteristic sense of light and life to the lawns of Kensington Gardens.

Kéré has embraced the British climate in his design, creating a structure that engages with the ever-changing London weather in creative ways. The Pavilion has four separate entry points with an open-air courtyard in the centre, where visitors can sit and relax during sunny days. In the case of rain, an oculus funnels water that collects on the roof into a spectacular waterfall effect, before it is evacuated through a drainage system in the floor for later use in irrigating the nearby parkland. Both the roof and walls are made from wood. By day, they act as shading, creating pools of dappled shadows. By night, the walls become a source of illumination as small perforations twinkle with the movement and activity from inside.
