jean nouvel and our nouvels
My mate Narein has highlighted the remarkable similarities between these two sets of structures; temporary pavillion at the Serpentine Gallery by Jean Nouvel and the 2009 SLIA Exhibition structures, especially the members stall. Remember that the SLIA Exhibition came before Jean Nouvel's structure.
more details of Jean Nouvel's Pavillion at Serpentine Gallery could be seen here. As this an annual event, there are a series of pavillions designed by prominent architects. Oscar Niemeyer would have been in his late nineties when he desinged the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion in 2003. Not bad at all! Vida longa, Oscar.
