Every year, I make a point of going to the new serpentine gallery pavilion at Hyde Park, as it is always a fun and inspirational day out. The short-term, small scale nature of this annual project often leads to an utterly innovative concept and design. This year it is well worth a visit, designed by multi award-winning Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto, the pavilion is a fantastic cloud like structure that acts as a climbing frame for anyone and everyone to walk and sit on – and best of all, this years’ holds a charming Fortnum and Mason cafe within!
