Hyde Park Music Pavilion

Hyde Park Music Pavilion

HPMP London
Open
 

Hyde Park is one of the largest parks in London, England, and one of the nine Royal Parks in the city. Three of these parks form a chain from the entrance of Kensington Palace through Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, to Buckingham Palace.

The park is divided in two by the Serpentine lake. The park is contiguous with Kensington Gardens, though sometimes it is considered part of Hyde Park. Kensington Gardens has been separate from Hyde Park since 1728, when Queen Caroline divided them. Hyde Park covers 140 hectares and Kensington Gardens covers 110 hectares giving a total area of 253 hectares, a larger surface area than the Principality of Monaco.

The Great Exhibition of 1851 was held in the park, for which The Crystal Palace, designed by Joseph Paxton, was erected.

In addition to walking through green pathways and forgetting about worldly noise, it is possible to do some other activities like sunbathing, skating, cycling and other sports.

One of the most popular activities among tourists and Londoners is to rent a boat in the lake, a small oasis inhabited by a diverse aquatic fauna.

The park hosts multiple events during summer, most of them concerts.

It has been an important venue for rock concerts since late seventies. The first rock concert in Hyde Park took place on 29 June 1968, and it was attended by 15,000 people. On the bill were Pink Floyd, Roy Harper and Jethro Tull.

The supergroup Blind Faith, featuring Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood, played their debut gig in Hyde Park on 7 June 1969.  The Rolling Stones headlined a concert (later released as The Stones in the Park) on 5 July that year, two days after the death of founding member Brian Jones.

It is now remembered as one of the most famous gigs of the 1960s.

The present competition for students of architecture and young architects Hyde Park Music Pavilion (HPMP) London consists in proposing a cultural space associated to music, that provides information about past and future concerts in Hyde Park. A cultural space where nature and the world of music will play a key role.

Music and everything around it must become the raison d’être of this architectural space, which must add value to the surroundings.

Thanks to its privileged location, the new proposed space will become a reference point for all visitors.

The pavilion aims to be a meeting point for visitors, music lovers and nature enthusiasts; a place that serves as information point about past and future concerts hold in the park, and as a space for leisure and relaxation where it will be possible to enjoy musical events.

An iconic and unique space, a place of reference for visitors of London and music lovers in general.

In a country full of world-famous iconic images, this new leisure space associated to the world of music must become the new architectural reference of the city.
