Serpentine Pavillion 2020 architects showcase role of green building materials

This year’s edition of the temporary architectural installation in Kensington Gardens will be designed and created by Johannesburg-based Counterspace

This year's Serpentine Pavilion will be built from a range of environmentally-friendly materials, including recycled construction and demolition waste.

The temporary architectural installation in Kensington Gardens will be designed and created by Johannesburg-based Counterspace, directed by Sumayya Vally, Sarah de Villiers and Amina Kaskar.

In its construction, they plan to use a variety of sustainable materials, including cork, which can be harvested without cutting down trees, and K-Briqs, which generate just a tenth of the carbon dioxide emissions of traditional fired bricks.
