VICTORIA AMAZONICA - HYDE PARK MUSIC PAVILION

“Let music spread like sea roses on the water.”

In 1851 Sir Joseph Paxton built the `Chrystal Palace´ in the Hyde Park for the World Exhibition. His inspiration for the steel structure was the water lily ‘Victioria Amazonica’. The underside of our stationary structure of our pavilion is based on the shape of the underside of a water lily leaf.

The Hyde Park has also been a space for art installations such as Christo’s work ‘Barrels’. His works with textiles, such as ‘Riffle Gap’ from 1971, serve as inspiration for the temporary ‘roof sail’ of our pavilion. Helium is pumped from the inside of the pavilion strand into the space between the two-ply textile of the sails, whereby the complete sail floats self-supporting over the serpentine and swings gently in the wind.

The acoustic of the performed music can best spread on the water, and the enjoyment of concerts is combined with one of Hyde Park’s favourite activities, boating on the Serpentine.

We not only take history as a reference, but also use our pavilion to publicly recall the history of Hyde Park. A public meeting point has to make people gather and give some emotions to bring poetry back to the society. We transform history and analogy into a iconic meeting point where music can flourish, like water lilies on water and build a bridge of music across the Serpentine.
