The Radić Pavilion (the Serpentine Gallery 2014 Pavilion), designed by the Chilean architect Smiljan Radić, was launched at Durslade Farm, Bruton, in March. To coincide with this, a season of exhibitions, events and installations exploring the nature of collaboration between architecture and other creative disciplines has been programmed. The season includes an exhibition entitled ‘As Many As Will’ by Turner prize-winning artist Susan Philipsz – renowned for her sound installations – as well as an exhibition of architectural models and studies, entitled ‘LAND MARKS: Structures for a Poetic Universe’, which displays more than 100 examples of architecture as sculpture, from the work of form-givers like Le Corbusier and Frank Lloyd Wright to such conceptual projects as an ideal Renaissance fortress and Superstudio’s Continuous Monument. Architecture Season also includes Dan Graham’s S-curve pavilion, which has been installed in the Farmyard, as well as a series of talks and a competition for young architects.
