The Second Home Serpentine Pavilion by SelgasCano will be one of the most high-profile cultural highlights in Los Angeles in 2019 – featuring exclusive arts commissions and events, as well as talks, film screenings and exclusive dinners.

Located at the world-famous La Brea Tar Pits in LA, the Pavilion will create a space where the city can explore and experience art up close and personal.

Originally commissioned by the Serpentine Gallery in London’s Hyde Park as part of their world-famous summer exhibition – the most visited architectural and design exhibition in the world presenting innovative, and unique structures by some of the world's most pioneering architects.

An amorphous, double-skinned, polygonal structure, each entrance to the Pavilion allows for specific journeys through the space, characterised by colour, light and irregular shapes with iridescent volumes.

At the heart of the structure is an open space which will host a world-leading contemporary cultural programme for LA.

The Second Home Serpentine Pavilion by SelgasCano will host the most exciting programme of cultural events in the city – with a world-class series that includes live music, technology, arts, film and wellness.

Programming partners will include a host of forward-thinking institutions, including the Natural History Museum, the London Contemporary Music Festival and the Serpentine Gallery.

The space offers a unique setting for private events too. Get in touch if you're interested in hosting an evening with us, or to find out more about sponsoring one of the world's most interesting art exhibitions.
