Serpentine pavilion 2011 by Peter Zumthor
"The concept for this year’s Pavilion is the hortus conclusus, a contemplative room, a garden within a garden. One enters the building from the lawn and begins the transition into the central garden, a place abstracted from the world of noise and traffic and the smells of London – an interior space within which to sit, to walk, to observe the flowers."

The video was recorded inside this years Serpentine pavilion, the internal courtyard view, the video was filmed from the table i was sitting at.
The pavilion for me was a great heaven, the internal courtyard though small had enough protection to create a safe comfortable environment in a space with a constant flow of people, the planted courtyard with the vibrant colours are in strong contrast to the dark surroundings, the covered walkway with the internal planted area represented a cloister a place of sanctuary with the open aired central space and protected surroundings, this was very much the impression and the emotions i felt inside.
