Ai Weiwei and Herzog & de Meuron, the superstar duo (or trio, depending on how you count) who brought the world the award-winning and iconic “Bird’s Nest” stadium for the 2008Beijing Olympic Games, have another collaboration for us to look forward to: the Serpentine Gallery has just announced the Chinese artist and the Swiss architectural firm will work together to create this year’s “Serpentine Pavilion,” the annual work of temporary architecture erected on the lawn of West London’s Kensington Gardens. Whatever architectural feats can be expected from the team-up, the choice seems custom engineered to be read as a political statement.

I’m very excited to see what will come from this collaboration!
