Serpentine Sackler Gallery
(Zaha Hadid Architects)

A 206-year-old, onetime gunpowder depot built in the style of a Palladian villa in Kensington Gardens has been repurposed by Pritzker Prize–winning architect Zaha Hadid as a new cultural destination to complement the Serpentine Gallery. Located yards from the existing gallery, the hitherto Magazine Building will encompass nearly 9,700 square feet of galleries and social space, including a restaurant, as well as a new wing.
