Park Nights 2018, Family Weekends

COS is proud to support Serpentine Galleries Park Nights 2018, a series of happenings on art, performance, music, fashion and dance explored at the 2018 Serpentine Pavilion, designed by award-winning architect Frida Escobedo. This year for the first time, we are also partnering with the Serpentine Galleries to provide support for Family Weekends, a line-up of interactive experiences as part of Serpentine’s Education programme.

Taking the form of an enclosed courtyard and inspired by Mexican domestic architecture, this year’s edition of the Pavilion utilises light and shadow, reflection and refraction to create a heightened awareness of passing of time. Comprised of two rectangular volumes angled to align with the eastern façade of the Serpentine Gallery and the Prime Meridian line at London’s Royal Observatory in Greenwich, Escobedo’s Pavilion is brought to life by a lattice of locally sourced cement roof tiles, chosen for their dark colours and textured surfaces.

This year’s Park Nights series takes place on selected Friday evenings from 13 July until 21 September and features site-specific events offering unique ways of experiencing architecture and performance.
