The task of transforming the lawn outside the Serpentine Gallery with a multi-purpose temporary Pavilion isn't an easy one. There's the pressure to think of something new, the pressure to think of something interesting and the pressure to not totally balls things up like back in 2004, when the Pavilion plans proved too advanced and too intricate to physically pull off.

This year's challenge falls on the Spanish architectural duo SelgasCano, who have promised a multi-coloured, angled Pavilion. Before their project is unveiled on Tue Jun 23, we're asking you to pick your favourite Serpentine Pavilion from years gone by. Check out previous years' designs in the slideshow and then vote for your favourite to the top of the list in our ranker below.
