A colourful design for the 15th annual Serpentine pavilion

The task of transforming the lawn outside the Serpentine Gallery with a multi-purpose temporary Pavilion falls to the Spanish architectural duo SelgasCano for the commission’s fifteenth anniversary – and it's a trippy kaleidoscopic biomorphic form that fellow Spaniard Joan Miró would be proud of.

As the fifteenth installation opens this summer, tell us which of the previous 14 Pavilions you've liked most here

It looks incredible from a distance and the design is experimental, creative and a bit left-field.  But it felt a bit underwhelming once we got inside.  Still, it's photogenic and you'll get a good share of Instagram likes.

The saddest version of the Pavilion I’ve seen. It actually seems a 4th grade art project in large scale. I’ve seen pictures at night, it may be more interesting, but during the day...: it is just depressing. The café inside has a terrible service, besides being ridiculously expensive (although this is not exclusive to this year’s pavilion. It has always being like that). A very bad feature, as having some food or some drink there is the best excuse to experience the pavilion; otherwise you just see it (get disappointed as with the one this year) and leave...
