Collection of modern, minimalist, and eco friendly architectural design for your home inspiration
Located in Kensington Gardens, London, the award winning Norwegian architect Kjetil Thorsen in collaboration with internationally acclaimed artist Olafur Eliasson, have designed the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2007. The building is defined as spectacular and dynamic architecture. The site has been opened for public on 24 August 2007.
Based on the principle of a winding ramp, the 2007 Serpentine Gallery Pavilion explores the idea of vertical circulation within a single space. The aim is to reconsider the traditional, single-level pavilion structure by adding a third dimension: height. The vertical movement of visitors in the Pavilion will complement the horizontal circulation in the exhibition spaces at the adjacent Serpentine Gallery.
The building uses the natural lighting at daytime by using the oculus in the roof. The space is defined by a geometric pattern that is both articulated as the wall surface and as places in which one can sit. The movement and interaction of the visitors will thus be a defining component of the Pavilion.
Visitors are invited to ascend from the lawn to the roof via the ramp, which functions as a mediator between the Pavilion interior and its surroundings. Whilst journeying upwards, they will first encounter the interior space, which is followed by an enclosed stretch of the ramp with the surroundings only glimpsed through the louvered facade.
Every Friday night, the Pavilion will act as a ‘lab’ for artists, architects, academics and scientists to lead a series of public experiments.

With tons of blueprints (over 16,000!) for different furniture designs and outdoor woodwork projectsyou can have a great insight into how to build different things with wood. In it, they tell you about wood, how to design projects, the detailed photographs, patterns, blueprints, materials list and step by step instructions on how to put build them.
The second part shows you the different tools and how to use them, and a complete guide to woodwork carpentry. And the color photographs and drawings are beautiful and show a lot of detail.
