African design chosen for London park pavilion

Diebedo Francis Kere, an award-winning architect from Burkino Faso, has been commissioned to design the Serpentine Pavilion that will stand in London’s Kensington Gardens park over the summer.

He is the first African architect to design the pavilion, which is built by a different architect every year.

The Serpentine Galleries said Mr Kere had responded to the brief with a “bold, innovative structure that brings his characteristic sense of light and life to the lawns”.
