Roca London Gallery recommends the Serpentine Pavilion:

"The role of the architect is to be able to absorb, reflect and translate who we are into the world. My practice, and this Pavilion, is centred around amplifying and collaborating with multiple and diverse voices from many different histories; with an interest in themes of identity, community, belonging and gathering."

Today marks the opening of the 20th Serpentine Pavilion, designed by the youngest ever recipient of the commission, architect Sumayya Vally of Counterspace

Inspired by spaces that are significant for migrant communities in the city, the carbon-negative Pavilion is built of reclaimed steel, cork and timber covered with micro-cement. The varying textures and hues of pink and brown are drawn directly from the architecture of London and reference changes in quality of light.

Open until 17 October 2021. Booking not required.

"Rehabilitation, sustainability and innovation unarguably converge in the circular economy model. To rehabilitate a building is to recover all its possibilities in the final stage of its first life cycle and to carry them over into the starting point for the next."

Architect and founder of the Institute of Structural Studies and the Catalan Institute of Wood, David Garcia has dedicated his life to the planning, calculation and management of architectural structural and rehabilitation works, with projects located around the world.

The deadline to participate in Roca’s international design contest Jumpthegap has been extended!

Architects and designers from all over the world now have until Monday 6 September to submit their best ideas for the bathroom space, which must address and advance the goals set out by the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

This deadline extension is the result of a progressive improvement of the COVID-19 situation in Spain, which makes it possible to plan a hybrid awards ceremony at Roca Barcelona Gallery on 14 October 2021 as part of Barcelona Design Week’s City Festival, in keeping with the tradition and spirit of Jumpthegap.

Our Story

Designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, the multi-award winning Roca London Gallery incorporates product display environments alongside a continuous programme of exhibitions and events on the topics of architecture and design.

Architecture

From the ripples of the façade to the multi-functional spaces within, the movement of water is the overriding theme in the Roca London Gallery, flowing and merging exterior and interior spaces. The sculpted interior includes more than 200 unique concrete panels, which, along with 1209 bespoke porcelain floor tiles, define the product display environments. Meanwhile, the iconic pod lighting highlights the fluid and continuous surfaces of the central axis, around which the Roca London Gallery revolves
