Serpentine Pavilion 2022: Black Chapel by Theaster Gates | Dezeen



Theaster Gates’ design for the 2022 Serpentine Pavilion was unveiled today in London’s Kensington Gardens as revealed in this exclusive video by Dezeen.

Together with Adjaye Associates, the Chicago-based artist created a cylindrical, chapel-like structure for this year’s commission as a peaceful space “where one could rest from the pressures of the day and spend time in solitude”.

Called Black Chapel, the 10-meter-tall pavilion is made mostly of blackened timber and features a conical roof structure with an oculus in its centre.
