Just a few blocks from Anish Kapoor’s aluminum Mountain in Toronto’s Simcoe Park stands another, even more majestic abstract peak, the Serpentine Pavilion. Designed by stellar architecture firm BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group, the temporary structure was erected in London’s Kensington Garden in 2016, disassembled and now has touched down on King Street West as part of its first North American tour. The pavilion shimmered in the warm late-afternoon light for an event hosted by developer Westbank. The firm’s collaborations with BIG were the subject of the exhibition in the cavity of
the open-air structure.
