以设计激活城市的动态项目而著称的墨西哥设计师Frida Escobedo日前完成了2018年的蛇形展馆项目。借助光线、水与几何的微妙互动,这座围绕庭院而作的设计融合了墨西哥建筑与英国建筑的材料及历史特征,值得一提的是,格林尼治皇家天文台的本初子午线元素也被融入作品当中。

The Mexican architect Frida Escobedo, celebrated for dynamic projects that reactivate urban space, has designed the Serpentine Pavilion 2018. Harnessing a subtle interplay of light, water and geometry, her atmospheric courtyard-based design draws on both the domestic architecture of Mexico and British materials and history, specifically the Prime Meridian line at London’s Royal Observatory in Greenwich.

展馆采用了封闭庭院的形式,由两座呈角度摆放的矩形体量组成。展馆的外墙与蛇形画廊(Serpentine Gallery)的东立面保持了平齐,内部庭院的轴线则与北立面对齐。内部庭院是墨西哥建筑所具有的普遍特征,而展馆的轴线则呼应了本初子午线的概念。本初子午线由格林尼治天文台于1851年确定,并成为全球时刻和地理距离的标准参考线。

Escobedo’s Pavilion takes the form of an enclosed courtyard, comprised of two rectangular volumes positioned at an angle. While the outer walls are aligned with the Serpentine Gallery’s eastern façade, the axis of the internal courtyard aligns directly to the north. Internal courtyards are a common feature of Mexican domestic architecture, while the Pavilion’s pivoted axis refers to the Prime Meridian, which was established in 1851 at Greenwich and became the global standard marker of time and geographical distance.
