Norwegian architect at Serpentine Pavilion event

 Date:07/09/2007
 Type:Culture, Architecture
 Location:England, London

Kjetil Thorsen, the Norwegian architect behind this year’s Serpentine Pavilion in Kensington Gardens is one of the participants in an event which explores the architecture of the Pavilion. The event is part of the Serpentine Gallery’s Park Nights programme which runs throughout the autumn every Friday night.

This event explores the architecture of the Pavilion through vibration, tone, duration and sound investigated in its most basic form: the compression of air through space. Architects, musicians and artists create a sonic laboratory by devising and performing hand-held experiments that explore the physicality of the space through the bodily and psychological perception of sound.

The Park Nights programme, which is sponsored by the Royal Norwegian Embassy, takes place every Friday at the Pavilion - for more information and full events listings, click here.
