On September 28, 2013, Zaha Hadid Architects will be celebrating the completion of the Serpentine Sackler Gallery. An extension to London’s famous Serpentine Gallery, the new innovative arts venue will be housed in a 208-year-old, Grade II-listed building, formerly known as The Magazine, in Kensington Gardens just north of the main gallery.

This project will be Zaha Hadid’s first permanent structure in central London and second commission from the Gallery, as she designed the inaugural Serpentine Gallery Pavilion in 2000.

Complimented by a “light and transparent extension” to the left of the original neo-classical building, the renovated venue will offer 900 square meters of gallery, restaurant and social space. In addition to Hadid's work, the landscape surrounding the new building will be designed and planted by the world-renowned landscape artist Arabella Lennox-Boyd.

Starting this autumn, the Serpentine will present its unrivaled program of exhibitions and events across both galleries and into the Park. Learn more about the Serpentine Sackler Gallery’s opening exhibition, by the young Argentinian artist Adrián Villar Rojas, here on their website.
