We now know Herzog & de Meuron and Ai Weiwei’s design for the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2012. While we waited for it, we decided to prepare a small Round Up with our previous coverage on the famous London’s Hyde Park pavilion. This includes the designs of Peter Zumthor, Jean Nouvel, and SANAA. To complete the Round Up, we have our post announcing the upcoming pavilion, and the special infographic we prepared earlier this year.
We have five great industrial projects from early-2011 for today’s Round Up. Like the Breathing Factory in Osaka, Japan. Or Gonzalez Goodale Architect’s Pasadena Water and Power. The Krauss Maffeir operating facilitie was built inside an industrial building that could not be structurally touched. What about the New Pumping Station in Stockholm, designed by UD Urban Design AB? Finally, the Miranda Winery in Oxley, Australia.
