Peter Zumthor designs the Serpentine Pavilion in 2011

Days before the current Pavillion, designed by Jean Nouvel, is taken down, the British “The Architects’ Journal” announces that another Pritzker Prize winner has been appointed to design next year’s Serpentine Pavilion in London’s Hyde Park.

Since all Zumthor’s works attract huge numbers of tourists and architecture lovers, London can expect also a new wave of visitors that until down had to travel to Switzerland, Austria or Germany if they wanted to have the opportunity to visit the architect’s work.

Known by his issues to compromise his work, due to budget questions, client’s inputs or other constraints, this type of commission is ideal for Zumthor, which in this way has the chance to express his freedom in which, we can only expect, another master work.

Looking forward to check out the first sketches.
