Counterspace designs Serpentine Pavilion 2020 to be built with recycled bricks



South African architecture studio Counterspace will use cork and bricks made of recycled construction waste to build this year's Serpentine Pavilion, which refers to the experiences of London's migrant communities in its design.

The 2020 pavilion will be made from cork and new bricks made of recycled material Counterspace's pavilion, which is the 20th Serpentine Pavilion, will centre on the experiences of London's migrant communities.
Different textures, shapes and gradients will be used to reference places in London that have large migrant populations, such as Brixton, Hoxton, Hackney, Whitechapel, Edgware Road, Peckham, Ealing and North Kensington.
"The pavilion is itself conceived as an event ? the coming together of a variety of forms from across London over the course of the pavilion?s sojourn," said lead architect Sumayya Vally
"These forms are imprints of some of the places, spaces and artefacts which have made care and sustenance part of London?s ident...
