Giant slides to be installed in London


Carsten Höller has unveiled his new plans for the Hayward Gallery, which includes two giant slides.

The slides are part of Höller’s ‘Decision’ exhibition and will be open to gallery visitors as an exit.

Director of the Hayward Gallery, Ralph Rugoff, said: “’Decision’ will ask visitors to make choices, but also, more importantly, to embrace a kind of double vision that takes in competing points of view”.

Visitors will be able to experience the exhibition from June to September.

Have a look at the design here and tell us if you’ll be having a go.

Serpentine Gallery reveals colourful design for 2015


The Serpentine Gallery has unveiled a new design by SelgasCano for its 2015 Pavilion.

The Spanish duo, appointed for the job in December, have transformed the pavilion into colourful chrysalis shaped structure.

The artists explained their project: “we sought a way to allow the public to experience architecture through simple elements: structure, light, transparency, shadows, form, change, surprise, colour and materials.”

The Serpentine Gallery annually gives designers the opportunity to provide their interpretation of the pavilion.

Discover the new pavilion here and tell us if you would like to visit.
