The weekend in London 07.06

Serpentine Gallery Pavillion

Herzog & de Meuron and Ai Weiwei are working together in the UK for the very first time to create the 2012 Serpentine Gallery Pavilion. This project will mark the twelfth commission in the gallery’s annual series, the world’s first and most ambitious architectural programme of its kind. The team created the Beijing National Stadium, and this archaeology-inspired design is just as hugely impressive as their previous stuff.

Until 14th October
Serpentine Gallery, Kensington Gardens London W2 3XA

Edgar Martins: This Is Not A House

Portuguese photographer Edgar Martins presents a collection of his now infamous images based on properties that have been left empty or abandoned due to the financial crisis. What’s made the collection so controversial is the fact that he digitally-altered the pictures after they had been taken, leading to criticism from some purists over the ‘truth’ of the images. Go see for yourself.

Until 30th June

Krankbrother street party

Dan and Kieran Clancy are the names behind krankbrother, a firm favourite of many London partygoers. Always seeking and securing new and exciting venues, the duo have outdone themselves this weekend with a full-on street party in Shoreditch featuring Wolf + Lamb, Guti Adeline and Stimming. What a day we’re in for. And if that’s not enough for ya, there’s an after-party too, just round the corner in the trusty Factory 7 venue.
