frank gehry at the serpentine london









this is not really related to branding or graphic design, but i wanted to post it anyways. a couple of weeks ago i carved out some time to visit frank gehry's temporary pavillion at the serpentine gallery. it's gehry's first project in the uk and it's only up for a short time. sadly the weather turned on me and the light was not great. i snapped over a hundred photos of it, but still don't feel i was able to capture the experience. it was strangely quiet there. people sat staring at the roof and sitting on the steps. it was really amazing to see. nothing was straight or aligned, it seemed like freeform architecture, a building with no visible rules or alignment.
