The Unzipped Wall

Perspective is everything. Bjarke Ingels' installation at The Serpentine couldn't illustrate that mantra more clearly.

Formed of hundreds of stacked translucent boxes, viewed side-on, the pavilion is rectangular. From the front, the curved silhouette of the wall becomes visible and prominent. The wall is opaque from one angle but see-through from another. It's solid but it's also full of holes.

We see things how we want to see them and the unzipped wall is a wonderful exploration of that.
