Mexican architect Frida Escobedo, celebrated for dynamic projects that reactivate urban space, will be in conversation with Hans Ulrich Obrist, Artistic Director, Serpentine Galleries.Frida Escobedo has been commissioned to design the Serpentine Pavilion 2018. Harnessing a subtle interplay of light, water and geometry, her atmospheric courtyard-based design draws on both the domestic architecture of Mexico and British materials and history, specifically the Prime Meridian line at Londons Royal Observatory in Greenwich. Escobedo (b. 1979, Mexico City) is the 18th and youngest architect yet to accept the invitation to design a temporary Pavilion on the Serpentine Gallery lawn in Kensington Gardens. This pioneering commission, which began in 2000 with Zaha Hadid, has presented the first UK structures of some of the biggest names in international architecture.
