Amanda Levete Wins 2018 Jane Drew Prize for

The Serpentine Gallery has recently announced the expansion of its famous summer vacation program, which has signed a partnership with the Beijing WF Center to design and offer options for the Exhibition Center Center Beijing Exhibition. The first Serpentine Pavilion to be built outside of the Galleries’ Kensington Gardens home in London, the Beijing Pavilion will be located just 600 meters away from the historic Forbidden City in the Dongcheng District, where it will host a program of cultural activities and events. The inaugural pavilion has been designed by emerging Chinese studio JIAKUN Architects, led by architect Liu Jiakun Drawing both from the historical and social of Beijing and from the storied 17-year history of the Serpentine Pavilion commission, the design features an arched form that balances forces of tensions and compression.
“JIAKUN Architects’ Serpentine Pavilion Beijing takes inspiration from Confucianism with an architecture that is a physical representation of the traditional pursuit of Junzi,” explains the Serpentine Pavilion in a press release. “The design is characterised by a the figure of the Archer, in the form of a curved cantilever beam that incorporates the forces of elasticity through cables stretched between steel plates. Although modern architecture in Beijing has developed a series of powerful techniques to fight the external forces of fierce winds and unpredictable earthquakes, the Pavilion’s integral structures aims – like the Tai Chi Master – to conquer the harness of those forces with softness.” JIAKUN Architects’ design was chosen by an 8-person selection committee that included: * Hans Ulrich Obrist, artistic director of the Serpentine Galleries * Yana Peel, CEO of the Serpentine Galleries * Sir David Adjaye, trustee of the Serpentine Galleries and founder of Adjaye Associates * David Glover, CEO of Intelligent Engineering and technical advisor to the Serpentine Pavilion Commission * Raymond Chow and James Robinson, executive directors of Hongkong Land * Wang Jianwei, artist * Philip Dodd, director of Made in China The inaugural Serpentine Pavilion Beijing will launch in May 2018 and will remain on display at WF Central.

    I am 64 and still working. I was a stay at home mom for many years and only worked part time till the kids left home. Now I am working full time and planning to continue for another 3 years till my husband retires. So I will definitely be putting it off till then in order to get more. Whether I will be able to wait until I am 70 is another question. Eadith Baily Woodberry

    Hi there, I really do think your internet site might actually be having internet browser
    compatibility problems. Whenever I look at your internet site in Safari, it looks fine but once
    opening in Internet Explorer, it provides some overlapping issues.
    I just wished to supply you with a quick heads up! Besides that, fantastic blog!
